Tabor has introduced the Lucid-X Series family of 40GHz microwave signal generators to its portfolio.

The Lucid-X family of signal generators have 8GHz, 20GHz, and 40GHz frequency ranges. With phase noise of -120dBc/Hz at 1GHz (10kHz offset), fast and high-resolution frequency switching, with +15dBm of standard output power, these instruments outperform some of the market’s most challenging requirements.

Built on Tabor’s modular technology platform, the LS-X family is available in PXIe, USB-module, rack, benchtop, and portable form factors.


The phase noise and output power, combined with amplitude accuracy, -40dBc harmonics, and low spurious provides the spectral purity engineers working on next-generation microwave and mmWave systems need to get their job done.

Multi-channel microwave signal generator

The unique modular multi-channel architecture of the LS-X series means that with one instrument, engineers can test mixers, RF A/D converters, amplifiers, and use it as a LO (Local Oscillator) to create microwave beams for electronic warfare and communication equipment testing.

Full set of modulation modes

Amplitude, frequency, and phase modulation outputs are all standard on Lucid-X signal generators.  The signal generator’s pulse modulator provides narrow pulsing capability with a high on/off ratio.

High-frequency signal generator in the PXI format

The Lucid-X microwave signal generator offers the best price-performance microwave signal generator in the PXIe format. Now PXIe systems can be configured as a mixer, amplifier, and RF A/D converter test stations at frequencies as high as 40GHz.

Modular form factor for OEM designers

Embed a 40GHz source in your radar or communications system, with USB control and excellent temperature stability it’s ideal for systems integration.

Portability for field test

The portable form factor is the size of a tablet computer, 28.0 x 22.5 x 6.5 cm (11.0 in x 9.0 in x 2.6 in), making it ideal for field test requirements.

A complete signal generation solution in any format addresses a wide range of needs

The multiple-form factor Lucid-X microwave signal generators meet demanding requirements for research, design, test, and troubleshooting. On the bench, in the rack, embedded, or as part of a PXIe test system, the LS-X series elegantly solves many engineering problems.
