The Agilent N5183A MXG is an economy class, continuous wave (CW) signal generator specifically designed to maximize uptime and reduce cost of ownership. Its less than or equal to 900-microsecond switching speed enables a dramatic increase in throughput. A simple design delivers easy self-maintenance that reduces downtime to one working day, making it possible for users to maintain or repair the instrument in-house. Not only does this capability maximize uptime, it also drives a lower cost of ownership.
Another key feature of the Agilent N5183A MXG is its outstanding performance -- delivering a combination of high output power and excellent level accuracy. With +18 dBm to 20 GHz output power, it is able to overcome losses and drive high-power devices. Additionally, it features a level accuracy, with optional step attenuator, of 0.6 to 0.8 dB. Other options to the Agilent N5183A MXG include analog modulation and pulse modulation -- all housed in a compact 2U (3 inch high) package that better uses rack space.
"Fast switching speed and lower cost of ownership are key requirements for today's broadband component manufacturing and R&D engineers," said Andy Botka, vice president of Agilent's Signal Sources Division. "With its available options and price/performance flexibility, the new Agilent N5183A MXG provides users with the capabilities they need to address these issues, while staying ahead of their competition."
Agilent's N5183A MXG offers a viable replacement to legacy HP/Agilent signal generators. It is programming compatible with the 8340, 8360 and 8370 Series signal generators as well as the ESG, PSG and 8662A/8663A solutions.
