The MG37020A Fast Switching Microwave Signal Generator covers both RF and microwave frequencies from 10 MHz to 20 GHz. The MG37020A with 100 µsec per point typical switching speed is an ideal signal source for RF and microwave applications requiring frequency agility, including data intensive applications such as antenna testing and satellite payload testing, high throughput applications such as RFIC and MMIC testing, and defense applications including radar and EW receiver testing.
The series also offers high output power, low phase noise, excellent spectral purity, and high performance pulse modulation. For example, the MG37020A can provide guaranteed +23 dBm at 20 GHz with -86 dBc/Hz phase noise at 10 kHz offset. This level of performance eliminates the need for external amplification while meeting tough spectral purity requirements.
The MG37020A offers high performance pulse modulation capability for signal simulations from simple to the complex. The MG37020A pulse modulation option includes an internal waveform generator, capability for single, double, triple and quadruple pulse burst modes, with leveled pulse widths as narrow as 100 ns and unleveled as narrow as 10 ns.
