Agilent Technologies introduced the world’s fastest vector signal generator in a PXI form-factor. The Agilent M9381A is a 1MHz to 3GHz or 6GHz VSG that combines fast switching and excellent RF parametric performance: high output power, linearity and superior level accuracy, outstanding adjacent channel power ratio performance (for output levels up to +10dBm or more) and wide modulation bandwidth (up to 160MHz) for testing RF devices.
Agilent designed the M9381A for applications such as testing and validating the design of wireless power amplifiers and transceivers, public safety and military radios, and cellular base stations, primarily picocell and femtocell. The new PXIe VSG does more tests in less time, which reduces the cost of testing. Agilent’s exclusive baseband-tuning technology innovation enables frequency and amplitude switching speed as fast as 10µs in list mode and 250µs from its programming interface. The switching speed is further enhanced by excellent linearity and repeatability associated with Agilent’s signal generators.
