Test & Measurement

March 27, 2013

Vaunix Technology Corp., (www.vaunix.com), a manufacturer of Lab Brick USB powered test equipment, has announced the addition of eight new models to its LMS Series of signal generators. The additions are in response to customer demand for defined frequency bands through 4 GHz, specifically 70 to 450 MHz, 250 to 1500 MHz, 600 to 3200 MHz, and 1000 to 4000 MHz.

The Lab Brick LMS series of USB-compatible, synthesized signal generators features low noise, fast 100-microsecond switching time, and fine 100 Hz frequency resolution, requiring no additional DC supply voltage. Advanced features include phase-continuous linear-frequency sweeping; selectable internal/external 10 MHz reference; optional pulse modulation; ability for GUI software to track and control several connected signal generators, simplifying multiple-signal test setups; and device storage of settings in internal memory, allowing it to power up in a specific instrument state. All devices offer robust aluminum construction.

The new models include: LMS-451D, a 70-450 MHz unit with +10, +13, and +20 dBm output power options; LMS-152D, a 250-1500 MHz unit with +10, +13, and +20 dBm output power options; LMS-322D, a600-3200 MHz unit with +10 dBm output power; and LMS-402D-13, a 1000-4000 MHz unit with +13 dBm output power.

Ideal applications for these products include building automated test equipment (ATE), use as a portable LO source, and engineering/production test lab use, both stationery and mobile.
