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.
  • Generate the signals you need with outstanding hardware performance
    • Test radar receiver sensitivity, characterize ADC or mixer signal-to-noise ratio, or find receiver out-of-band rejection with unmatched phase noise and spurious performance
    • Drive power amplifiers and characterize nonlinear behavior with industry-leading ACPR and output power
    • Test wideband receivers and components, such as for 802.11ac WLAN, with the only one-box, factory-equalized 160 MHz RF bandwidth solution
  • Maximize resources with low cost of ownership
    • Increase uptime with high mean time between failures (MTBF) based on first-generation MXG track record
    • Minimize downtime and expenses with self-maintenance strategy and low-cost repairs
