With its level of performance, this Aeroflex 2023A compact general purpose signal generator delivers outstanding value for money.
Frequency resolution of 1 Hz across the complete frequency range of 1.2 GHz, 2.05 GHz or 2.51 GHz ensures adequate resolution to characterize narrow band communication systems and components.
Peak RF output levels of between +13 dBm and -140 dBm can be set accurately with a resolution of 0.1 dB. An attenuator hold function allows control of the RF output without introducing RF level dropouts from the step attenuator to facilitate testing of receiver squelch systems, and during EMI investigations. A RF level limit can be set to limit the output power to avoid damage to external, power sensitive devices. RF level offsets up to ±5 dB can be applied to counter the effects of test system losses etc. A carrier ON/OFF key is provided to completely disable the output.
An electronic trip protects the generator output against reverse power of up to 50 W from a source with a VSWR s of up to 5:1, preventing damage to output circuits if a RF transmitter or DC power supply is accidentally applied to the output connector. This feature contributes to long service life and low cost of ownership.
The 2023A/B and 2025 occupy a full rack width, but only 2 units high.
