Keysight N5182B MXG X-Series RF Vector Signal Generator

Manufacturer: Keysight
Model Number: KS N5182B
Whether you are pushing for a linear RF chain or an optimized link budget, the MXG delivers what you need: phase noise, ACPR, channel coding, and more. Take your devices and designs to the limit with the MXG.
  • 9 kHz to 3 or 6 GHz
  • +24 dBm specified power to 3 GHz with electronic attenuator
  • -146 dBc phase noise at 1 GHz and 20 kHz offset
  • ≤-73 dBc ACP W-CDMA 64 DPCH and <0.4% EVM 160 MHz 802.11ac
  • AM, FM, ØM, and narrow pulse
  • 10 MHz multifunction generator and LF out
  • Digital step and list sweep modes
  •  l/Q Modulation: ASK, FSK, MSK, PSK, QAM, custom I/Q
  • Industry-leading ACPR and output power
  • 160 MHz internal baseband generator (+/- 0.2 dB flatness): arbitrary waveform and real-time I/Q
  • 1 Gsample playback memory and 30 GB internal or 8 GB external, removable memory
  • Arbitrary and real-time signals: LTE, HSPA+, WLAN, GNSS, DVB, and more
  • Multi-channel baseband generation with N5102A digital I/O, MIMO, and RF fading with PXB baseband generator and channel emulator
