Boonton SGX1000 18GHz RF Signal Generator Series
The SGX1000 series of 3/6/18GHz RF Signal Generators from Saelig combines technology to provide high performance CW and swept signal generation
Saelighas introduced the Boonton SGX1000 RF Signal Generators - a new series of instruments that combine high performance RF signal generation capabilities with an intuitive user interface. They cover a frequency range from 10MHz to 18GHz to provide superior operational performance such as extremely fast frequency switching, phase noise figures as low as -123 dBc/Hz (3GHz with 10kHz offset) and ultra-low 55fs jitter.
Boonton’s design, combining direct digital and direct analog synthesis, has resulted in an RF source with ultra-fine frequency resolution, fast frequency switching, low phase noise and jitter, and strong reliability. The SGX1003 (3GHz), the SGX1006 (6.7GHz), and the SGX1018 (18GHz) all utilize a unique non-PLL (phase locked loop) design with a digital front-end, and a direct, proprietary back-end that provides superior CW and sweep capabilities.
The SGX1000 series is built on the latest Boonton instrument platform which offers an easy-to-use modern interface in a compact form factor (3.5x8.3x11.2”; 7lb) and is optionally rack-mountable. The intuitive, multi-touch display enables easy parameter access and configuration for performing frequency and/or power sweeps, as well as adjustments to amplitude, frequency, phase, and pulse modulation settings. These all help the instrument to address a wide variety of RF test requirements.
