Tabor Electronics introduced the Lucid-X series microwave signal generators. The Lucid-X family of signal generators have 8 GHz, 20 GHz and 40 GHz frequency ranges. With phase noise of -120 dBc/Hz at 1 GHz (10 kHz offset), fast and high-resolution frequency switching, with +15 dBm of standard output power, these instruments outperform some of the market’s most challenging requirements.

Built on Tabor’s modular technology platform, the LS-X family is available in PXIe, USB-module, rack, benchtop and portable form factors.

Outstanding specifications

The outstanding phase noise and output power, combined with excellent amplitude accuracy, -40 dBc harmonics and low spurious provides the spectral purity engineers working on next generation microwave and mmWave systems need to get their job done.

Multi-channel microwave signal generator

The unique modular multi-channel architecture of the LS-X series means that with one instrument, engineers can test mixers, RF A/D converters, amplifiers, and use it as a local oscillator to create microwave beams for electronic warfare and communication equipment testing.

Full set of modulation modes

Amplitude, frequency and phase modulation outputs are all standard on Lucid-X signal generators. The signal generator’s pulse modulator provides narrow pulsing capability with a high on/off ratio.

High frequency signal generator in the PXI format

The Lucid-X microwave signal generator offers the best price performance microwave signal generator in the PXIe format. Now PXIe systems can be configured as mixer, amplifier, and RF A/D converter test stations at frequencies as high as 40 GHz.

Modular form factor for OEM designers

Embed a 40 GHz source in your radar or communications system, with USB control and excellent temperature stability ideal for systems integration.

Portability for field test

The portable form factor is the size of a tablet computer, 28.0 x 22.5 cm x 6.5 cm (11.0 in x 9.0 in x 2.6 in), making it ideal for field test requirements.

A complete signal generation solution in any format addresses a wide range of needs.

The multiple form factor Lucid-X microwave signal generators meet demanding requirements for research, design, test and troubleshooting. On the bench, in the rack, embedded or as part of a PXIe test system, the LS-X series elegantly solves many engineering problems.
