A PC-based signal generator with a 300kHz to 8GHz frequency output range has been introduced by Saelig Company, with the PicoSource AS108 Agile Synthesiser. It is designed with fast settling time and extensive programmable phase, frequency, and amplitude capabilities
.The AS108 offers professional performance qualities in static as well as parameter-varying applications. Its speed, external clock referencing, trigger capabilities, and user-programmable power-up mode make it suitable for system integration in automated test, unmanned installations and multi-signal stimulus applications.
The AS108 is a full-function USB-controlled vector modulating (IQ) signal synthesiser. It is supplied with a comprehensive PC-based user interface for controlling amplitude, frequency and phase, including modulations, sweeps, hopping, and list modes. Multiple synthesisers can be controlled from a single controller. Remote operation is also possible using the API provided.
The PicoSource AS108 is well suited for developers, scientists, educators, students, and service and installation technicians in both benchtop and integrated module applications.
Made by Pico Technology, Europe's test and measurement manufacturer, the PicoSource AS108 Agile Synthesiser is available now at $5,875 from Saelig Company, their USA technical distributor.
