Anritsu's R&D Director Alexander Chenakin presents the Rubidium MG362x1A, the company's new low-noise RF/microwave signal generator that operates from 9 kHz to 43.5 GHz. The platform incorporates atomic-clock frequency stability with an internal rubidium frequency reference option. Alternatively, exceptional frequency stability can be obtained by locking an internal oven-controlled crystal (OCXO) reference to an external GNSS signal.
The system comes in a 3U chassis with a 7-in. touch screen in addition to a conventional keypad and dial interface. Remote management via Ethernet and IEEE-488 GPIB is supported as well.
