Standard Agilent Technologies ESG family RF signal generators incorporate a broad array of capabilities for testing both analog and digital communications systems. Adding flexible options provides a test solution that will evaluate the performance of a communication system to the requirements of nearly all current and proposed air interface standards. Many test functions can be customized to meet the needs of proprietary and other nonstandard wireless protocols as well. You can configure your instrument to address a wide variety of tests from altering nearly every aspect of a digital signal or signal operating environment, to creating experimental signals. This flexibility, along with an architecture that accepts future enhancements makes the ESG family an excellent choice for wireless communications system testing now and in the future.
Specified superior level accuracy
Superior level accuracy of ±0.5 dB (>-127 dBm, fc <2 GHz) and ±0.9 dB (fc >2 GHz) provides unmatched specified performance and minimizes test uncertainty. Even with digital modulation turned on, level accuracy is better than ±1.05 dB. This unprecedented performance ensures precise measurement of even the most sensitive analog or digital receivers.
Wideband FM and FM
Use the wide FM bandwidth and superior dc FM accuracy and stability to simulate a VCO when you are designing a receiver. With up to 40 MHz FM deviations and 10 MHz rates, the ESG meets a variety of measurement requirements. Extremely stable dc FM precisely reproduces digital signaling for FM receivers with selective squelch control. The wideband FM capabilities are useful in satellite communications applications and offer deviations up to 360 radians and 4 MHz rates.
