Vector Signal Generator Suits Wideband Multichannel mmWave Applications

June 18, 2022
Keysight's VXG signal generators address 5G, 6G research, satellite communications, and radar solutions.

This article is part of our IMS2022 coverage.

At IMS2022 Booth 7030, Keysight Technologies will show its M9484C VXG vector signal generator, a four-channel instrument that ranges to 54 GHz while delivering up to 5 GHz of RF bandwidth and low phase noise. The M9484C expands the company's VXG series portfolio with real-time capabilities to support demanding wireless industry applications. The M9484C VXG signal generator, with a V3080A vector signal generator frequency extender, expands the frequency range up to 110 GHz to address the needs for the latest and evolving standards.

New 5G mobile communications, 6G research, satellite communications and radar applications use a wide range of frequencies, up to and including mmWave spectrum. Testing these applications requires signal generation equipment capable of creating mmWave signals at extremely high bandwidth. These new applications also adopt multi-antenna techniques, such as spatial diversity, spatial multiplexing, and beamforming to achieve diversity, multiplexing and antenna gains for high-throughput and robust communications.

Keysight's new M9484C VXG signal generator enables customers to reduce test system setup complexity and achieve accurate and repeatable multichannel measurements in a single instrument. It features a scalable architecture that enables the most demanding wideband and multichannel test signals with frequencies up to 110 GHz. In addition to generating test signals with an RF bandwidth up to 5 GHz, it covers frequency ranges from 9 kHz to 54 GHz and up to 110 GHz with a V3080A vector signal generator frequency extender.
