RIGOL Technologies recently expanded its portfolio of RF Test solutions with the launch of the DSG800 Series RF Signal Generator. The series—which is targeted at engineers implementing Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and other RF interfaces in embedded systems—covers output frequencies from 9 kHz to 3 GHz. It provides maximum output power up to 20 dBm and low SSB phase noise of –105 dBc/Hz, amplitude accuracy of ±0.5 dB, and frequency resolution 0.01 Hz at any frequency. An oven-controlled crystal oscillator timebase provides less than 5 ppb temperature stability and less than 30 ppb/year aging stability.
The DSG800 RF signal generators provide:
- Conventional sweep functions (step, list, logarithmic, and linear)
- Analog modulation functions including amplitude modulation (AM), frequency modulation (FM), phase modulation (ΦM), and pulse modulation
- An optional pulse train generation capability for translating serial data onto an RF link
There are two models in the DSG800 series. THe DSG815 (9 kHz to 1.5 GHz) costs $1,999. The DSG830 (9 kHz to 3 GHz) costs $3,599.
