The ASGM18A AXIe Advanced Signal Generator (ASG) is a real-time RF signal generator from Gigatronics that operates from 100 MHz to 18 GHz. It has a 1 Hz resolution and a frequency switching time of less than 1 μs. The modular ASGM18A is built on the industry-standard AXIe form factor and works in conjunction with the Giga-Tronics SRM100A System Reference Module and either the CHSIS2A AXIe 2-channel or CHSIS4A AXIe 4-channel chassis for multi-channel, phase coherent operation.
This signal generator has an upconverting option, that can be used for emulating agile, low-noise emitters anywhere within that same wide frequency range. As an RF Upconverter, the ASGM18A can be used to generate complex, wide bandwidth signals for testing Radar and EW systems.
