The SGX1006 from Boonton is an RF Signal Generator that operates from 10 MHz to 6.4 GHz with a step size of 0.001 Hz. It can provide an output power of up to 16 dBm with a resolution of 0.01 dB and has a single sideband phase noise of -122 dBc/Hz. The generator utilizes a unique non-PLL (phase locked loop) design with a digital front-end and proprietary back end to provide ultra-fine frequency resolution, lightning-fast frequency switching, ultra-low phase noise and jitter, and superior reliability. It has a frequency/amplitude switching speed of 200 µs and has jitters of less than 100 fs.
The SGX1006 has an intuitive, multi-touch display that enables easy access and configuration to perform frequency and/or power sweeps to address a wide variety of test requirements. It has 2 USB ports, LAN connectivity, multiple I/O connectors for status, trigger, and voltage-out. The benchtop generator is measures 89 x 211 x 284 mm and has N-type (female) connectors. It requires an AC supply from 90 to 260 V and consumes less than 30 W of power.
