Product Description


Agilent / Keysight Signal Generator

Agilent MXG analog has three frequency range options to choose from to meet your specific RF test and budget requirements.

Selecting Option 506 equips the Agilent MXG analog to generate signals in a 250 kHz to 6 GHz frequency range.

Option 506 is recommended for test cases that require CW and analog modulated RF test signals at or below 6 GHz carrier frequencies. Common signal generation uses include LO and clock substitution, interference generation, and reference signal generation for analog components and receivers.

  • Covers the entire cellular and ISM frequency bands
  • Frequency resolution: .01 Hz
  • Phase noise performance: -116 dBc/Hz at 1 GHz carrier, 20 kHz offset
  • Output power: +12 dBm (measured) at 6 GHz with electronic attenuator
  • Frequency switching speed: 5 ms standard (SCPI mode & list mode) or 1.05 ms (SCPI) and 800 us (list) with Option UNZ
  • TCXO time base reference provides excellent frequency accuracy and drift characteristics
