A robust test bench is an essential element to any team conducting daily RF device and assembly prototyping, characterization, and calibration. And among the most common instruments you’ll find on benches everywhere, from component and subsystem manufacturers to antenna system integrators and cellular network providers, is a signal generator.
Lab Brick model LMS-183DX is an easily programmable digital signal generator that is useful in wireless ATE test stands and in radar testing and simulations. The 6 to 18 GHz device is easily programmed via USB connection to a PC.
The LMS-183DX is a USB Programmable Signal Generator with a frequency range of 6.0 to 18.0 GHz. This unit offers a 100 Hz frequency step size, configurable linear frequency sweeping and 0.5 dB power control steps.
Capable of bidirectional fixed attenuation, swept attenuation ramps, and fading profiles, the Vaunix LDA-602Q four port programmable attenuator provides up to 120 dB of control range with a 0.1 dB step size from 200 MHz to 6 GHz. Each of four RF ports of this device has a 50 Ohm impedance.
