AtlanTecRF introduces what it considers to be the best value miniature signal generator currently available.

The newly released Miniature Signal Generator from AtlanTecRF, a division of Atlantic Microwave Ltd., uniquely combines exceptional RF performance and versatility of digital interface in a highly compact package. In addition to the ultra-wide frequency range of 25 to 6000 MHz, tuneable in 1 KHz steps, the spearhead of RF performance of these ASG modules is in the spectral purity of their output signal. Phase noise at an output frequency of 1GHz is better than -106dBc/Hz at an offset of 100KHz from the carrier. Spurious are typically lower than -70 dBc and harmonics less than -25 dBc.

Geoff Burling, AtlanTecRF CEOsaid,“The important development of the ASG Miniature Signal Generator brings truly amazing benefits to the RF world and never before has such a module been packed with so much premium performance and versatility at an affordable cost. Pre-launch interest has been incredible and production is already being geared up to match anticipated demand and keep delivery available from stock”.

The clean output signal combined with power levels to +13 dBm, controllable on 0.1 dB steps, make the ASG series of Miniature Signal Generators suitable for use in most RF theatres of application including test and measurement, communications systems and covert interception and countermeasures.

The versatile ASG digital interface provides control options which include direct USB with convenient and clearly functional GUI plus input power derivation but each unit also has the capability of being driven by RS232. Additionally, for both the 6GHz version of the ASG Miniature Signal Generator and its 3GHz sibling there is an option of Ethernet control thereby allowing totally remote and unattended operation in the field and picking up all the logistics and cost advantages.

Frequency stability is determined by an internal TCXO with +/-1ppm maximum variation over the -20 to +50C operating temperature range but the Miniature Signal Generator can also be connected to an external reference of between 10 and 50 MHz where system stability tracking is required.

With all this RF performance, digital connectivity and operational versatility the compact new ASG design comes in a package just 21 x 72 x 100mm and weighs less than 300 grammes. For more informatio visit
