The Phase Matrix/EIP 114XA family of VXIbus synthesized signal generators are ideal synthesizers for ATE applications. In only 3 VXI slots, They combine 0.01 to 20 GHz performance with 1 Hz resolution, unique complex modulation capability and outstanding spectral purity. Three models cover 4 to 12.4 GHz , 2 to 20 GHz or 0.01 to 20 GHz . All are fully compliant with VXIbus specification Revision 1.3/1.4 and Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments (SCPI) version 1993.
Microwave performance is not compromised for VXIbus compliance. The 114XA series utilizes full modular shielding and post regulation with double filtering to ensure outstanding performance, even when sharing a system with digital instruments. And the 114XA does not sacrifice spurious and phase noise performance for small size. With spurious signals below -60dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset, the 114XA is ideal for local oscillator duty in radar/EW testing, narrowband device characterization, and communication systems testing.
The 114XA family features simultaneous and independent amplitude, frequency and pulse modulation capabilities. AM up to 90% at rates from DC to 100 KHz make the 114XA ideal for antenna scan pattern modulation, power control, and satellite beacon simulation. Pulse modulation operates with pulse widths as narrow as 50 ns and PRF''''s up to 10 MHz for radar testing and pulsed device characterization. Frequency modulation rates (Option 02) to 5 MHz with deviations up to 25 MHz peak facilitates testing of telemetry receivers and satellite communications
The IF modulation input on the 114XA provides you with the means to upconvert complex digital signals or complex jamming scenarios onto the microwave output signal. The IF input has a 40 MHz instantaneous bandwidth and supports wideband frequency, phase, amplitude and noise modulation. For communications systems, the IF modulation input makes it easy to test digital receivers as well as simulate co-channel and adjacent channel interference. In addition, this input (standard on all of the 114XA family) allows for sub-microsecond frequency hopping with 40 MHz instantaneous bandwidth: fast enough to simulate many spread spectrum sources
