Product Description

The N5161A MXG ATE RF signal generator provides the same industry-leading performance, reliability, and form factor (2RU) of the popular N5181A MXG -- all at a reduced price. This signal generator has been streamlined for automated test equipment (ATE) needs with removal of the front-panel display and all connectors relocated to the rear panel for convenient and secure rack configurations. Combining the outstanding MXG performance with a base price reduction over the N5181A MXG signal generator, makes the N5161A MXG ATE analog signal generator ideally suited for today’s demanding production environment.

Simplified self-maintenance decreases time for repair and performance verification, keeping downtime to less than 2 hours. using field-replaceable assemblies.

Selecting Option 506 equips the Agilent MXG ATE analog to generate signals in a 100 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 cellular and lower ISM frequency bands
  • Frequency resolution: 0.01 Hz
  • Phase noise performance: -116 dBc/Hz at 1 GHz carrier, 20 kHz offset
  • Output power: +23 dBm at 2 GHz with electronic attenuator
  • Frequency switching speed: 5 ms standard (SCPI mode & list mode) or 1.15 ms (SCPI) and 900 us (list) with Option UNZ
  • TCXO time base reference provides excellent frequency accuracy and drift characteristics
