The M9384B from Keysight Technologies is a dual-channel, multi-touch vector signal generator that operates from 1 Mhz to 44 GHz with a 2 GHz RF Bandwidth. This signal generator has an output power range from -110 to 23 dBm. The high output power allows it to compensate for system loss and enable 5G power amplifier and over-the-air (OTA) testing. It has phase coherent LO and baseband synchronization for multi-user or beamforming MIMO OTA testing.
This signal generator is compatible with Keysight's PathWave Signal Generation software which can help accelerate design and test workflows. It has a new graphical user interface for 5G NR that delivers a streamlined experience when creating standard-compliant test signals.
Keysight’s 5G waveform generation and analysis testbed solution leverages the VXG microwave signal generator’s enhanced capabilities for 5G development teams to efficiently validate new designs across both frequency range 1 (FR1) and frequency range 2 (FR2) as defined by 3GPP. The testbed solution uniquely addresses the challenges of 5G NR conformance test and enables Keysight to quickly integrate new technology into market-ready solutions that enable customers to move faster and achieve first-to-market goals.
