Agilent Technologies, Inc. announces its compact microwave analog signal generator that is an extension to its MXG signal generator platform, providing frequency coverage to 20, 32 or 40 GHz. Featuring fast frequency switching speeds, high reliability and easy self-maintenance, this mid-performance signal generator provides the performance required to make a range of broadband measurements. It is well suited for EW, radar, military communications and broadband wireless access applications. The N5183A MXG is an economy class, continuous wave (CW) signal generator that maximizes uptime. Its less than or equal to 900 msec switching speed enables an increase in throughput. A simple design delivers easy self-maintenance that reduces downtime to one working day, making it possible for users to maintain or repair the instrument in-house.
