WITH A FREQUENCY RANGE of 10 MHz to 20 GHz, the HMC-T2100 synthesized signal generator covers all major communication bands with frequency resolution of 10 kHz and switching speed of 300 s. This compact, lightweight frequency generator delivers continuous-wave (CW) output power to +27 dBm in 0.1-dB steps over a 40-dB dynamic range. It offers harmonic rejection that is better than 39 dBc at 1 GHz with less than 65 dBc spurious products at 10 GHz. The signal generator features 113 dBc/Hz phase noise at 100 kHz offset from 1 GHz with stable performance at temperatures from 0 to +35C. It includes multiple interfaces (USB, GPIB, and Ethernet) and control software. An installation disk that accompanies each unit includes all of the drivers required to remotely control the device as well as a LabWindows-based graphical user interface (GUI) that is compatible with Windows XP or Vista. P&A: available now; $7998.
