Agilent 0807

Agilent Technologies has announced a series of enhancements to the MXG RF signal generators designed to deliver up to +23 dBm output power, extend the distortion performance and provide phase coherency support for MIMO and beamforming applications.

The enhancements make the generators suitable for R&D and manufacturing engineers defining, developing and optimising wireless network and mobile communications test systems.

A key enhancement to the MXG is a hardware change that results in the best combination of high output power and low distortion performance:

  • Output power — increased from +13  to +23 dBm (20 MHz to 3 GHz), and from +11 to +16 dBm (3 to 6 GHz) with Option 1EA. With its best-in-class output power, the generators are able to overcome losses and drive high-power devices without an external amplifier, thereby simplifying test setup.
  • Distortion — specified ACPR performance of -71 dBc for single-carrier W-CDMA up to +5 dBm. Greater test margins and increased measurement accuracy stem from the signal generators' low distortion performance at high power levels. This performance not only improves test yield, but also allows the engineer to test higher-performance components
