The 83712A Synthesized CW Generator is ideal for local oscillator and exciter applications. High output power and exceptional signal purity are combined with broad frequency coverage in this performance-packed synthesizer. Fundamental oscillators and switched low-pass filters deliver <-55 dBc harmonics, eliminate subhermonics, and suppress spurious to <-60 dBc. This generator is the recommended local oscillator for use with the 8970B noise meter. All front panel functions are completely HP-IB programmable and SCPI compatible.
- High stability time base for frequency accuracy
- Low SSB phase noise for out-of-channel tests
- High power output for driving the LO port of mixers
- Low output power with option 1E1 for receiver sensitivity and SINAD measurements
