The MG3690B is a broadband high performance signal generator that covers RF and microwave frequencies from 0.1 Hz to 65 GHz (operational to 67 GHz) in a single instrument. The frequency range of the MG3693B is 2 to 30 GHz. For mmW frequencies, the coverage of the MG3690B can be extended up to 325 GHz or beyond, with external multipliers.
The MG3690B replaces the original MG3690A, offering higher output power and faster frequency switching speed. Whether you have a requirement for a high power local Oscillator that can deliver up to a half watt typically at 20 GHz, or you want to decrease the test time of an ATE station by greater than two folds, the MG3690B will exceed your expectations. The MG3690B preserves full backward compatibility with the MG3690A and previous 68C/69B series of Synthesizers.
The MG3690B family is extremely configurable to meet your exact need, minimizing your initial investment. It is also very adaptable with a comprehensive list of upgrades for your future needs. Furthermore, the MG3690B can be customized for specific applications. The MG3690B is backed with a complete 3-year warranty, which comes as a standard feature.
The MG3690B offers all the capabilities of a high-end microwave generator at the highest performance level. It leverages the technology-leading phase noise performance of its predecessor, the 69C series. It offers outstanding output power with the lowest spectral purity content. Frequency can be swept digitally or via an analog ramp sweep. A CW frequency could be phase offset or locked within an external phase lock loop. Amplitude, Frequency, Phase, and Pulse modulations are available externally or internally-driven. An external software package simplifies the use of these modulations simultaneously, and allows the down-loading of user-defined modulation waveforms. For IQ modulation, the IF input option allows the easy up-conversion of an externally IQ-modulated RF signal.
