RF Vector Signal Generator for EVM
PrecisionWave Corporation announces the release of the p1511A, a low-cost RF Vector Signal Generator. The p1511A generates digitally modulated and CW signals in the 800 to 1000 MHz and 1700 to 2200 MHz cellular bands for developers and testers of cellular technology-based products. The instrument’s I/Q generator produces high-accuracy signals for any digital modulation scheme used in these bands. As examples, EDGE average RMS EVM (Error Vector Magnitude) is typically less than 0.8%, and GSM phase error is below 1°. With a -100 dBM to +20 dBm power output range, harmonic suppression is better than -40 dBc @ +13 dBm, and spurious is below -80 dBc. These specifications compare very favorably with instruments costing several times more than the p1511A.
