Adding heft to its test and measurement portfolio, distributor Farnell is selling the TGR2050 series of next generation Radio Frequency (RF) signal generators from Aim-TTi. The generators have a small footprint and lightweight design.

The TGR2050 series includes the TGR2051and TGR2053RF signal generators which offer high signal purity, high frequency accuracy and stability, a large signal amplitude range, low phase noise and fast amplitude and/or frequency sweeps.

Extensive and flexible analogue and digital modulation capabilities make these signal generators ideal for research and development, test and service work.

Both models also offer improved functionality with intuitive touch screen operation.

Advanced remote-control connectivity accommodates sophisticated new automated systems and compatibility with Aim-TTi's previous RF instruments, ensuring simple integration with existing systems.

The generators provide high frequency accuracy and stability, high signal purity with excellent phase noise, output power levels of -127dBm to +13dBm, and flexible analogue and digital modulation capabilities.

A sweep function enables signals of varying frequency and/or amplitude to test a full range of input conditions quickly and efficiently. Sweeps can be set to run in either direction, with linear or logarithmic spacing. Alternatively, list mode (accessible within the instrument or from remote interfaces) can be used to analyse the response at set frequencies and amplitude.

A TGR-U01 option adding an extensive range of digital modulations: FSK, GFSK, MSK, GMSK, HMSK, 3FSK, 4FSK, PSK, ASK and OOK.

Built in NRZ patterns include Square wave, 7, 9, 11 and 15-bit PRBS. Digital modulation capabilities also include advanced filtering. External digital modulation signals can be applied to the carrier waveform via the MOD in/out on the rear panel.

James McGregor, Global Head of Test and Tools for Farnell says: “The new TGR2050 Series of RF signal generators from Aim-TTi is an excellent addition to Farnell’s market-leading Test range. This series delivers exceptional performance at a class-leading price point. In 2019, Farnell invested over £4 million in the Test category and as we begin 2020 we remain committed to further increasing the breadth of our portfolio, to ensure electronic design professionals have access to the latest and most advanced test and measurement technologies.”

Customers also benefit from Farnell’s in-house test and measurement specialists who provide 24/5 technical support as well as access to free online resources, data sheets, application notes, videos and webinars.

The Aim-TTi TGR250 Series RF signal generators are available from Farnell in EMEA, Newark in North America and element14 in APAC.
