Performance Advntage

• Dynamic Range

The dynamic range of the signal source is the power difference between the maximum and minimum signals that can be output. The dynamic range of the G6 is as large as -100dBm to +10dBm.

• Phase Noise

Phase noise is an important indicator of the performance of a signal source. It refers to the ratio of the signal power in the 1 Hz bandwidth at the signal center frequency offset of 10 kHz to the total power of the signal. The phase noise of the G6 is very good, at -105dBc/Hz.

• 10MHz Reference Signal

G6 has a physical 10MHz reference signal port (SMA). Engineer can choose to use the built-in 10MHz clock signal and send it out, or receive and synchronize clock signals from other devices.

Typical applications

Laboratory radio frequency testing

G6 covers 10MHz to 6GHz wireless radio frequency communication range with full range 10KHz phase noise better than -110dBc, Hz (typical value) which allow G6 replace LO. G6 also supports testing of intermodulation distortion on amplifier, mixer and receiver. By using with spectrum analyzer, G6 is able to complete broadband and frequency response performance testing for antenna, amplifier, attenuator etc.
