Saelig Company introduces the Siglent SSG5000X RF Signal Generators which generate analog and vector signals across a frequency range of 9kHz to 4GHz/6GHz with a 0.001Hz frequency setting resolution. They provide outstanding performance in phase noise, spectral purity, EVM, bandwidth, and output power. The internal IQ modulation generator and waveform playback function on the -V models make it simple to produce even the most complex signal types. They also incorporate the most important RF band for digital wireless communications and include standard waveform files.

The device's 5" colour touch screen allows fast and intuitive control of the instrument. It provides a maximum output power +26dBm (typ.) with phase noise of -120dBc/Hz @ 1GHz, 20kHz offset (typ.) The ARB Mode can be utilised to play back digital communication waveform files, whilst the Custom Mode on the -V versions can generate IQ modulated signals, such as QAM, PSK, ASK, FSK, sample rate up to 120Msps. Frequency sweeps can be done in linear or logarithmic steps. AM, FM, PM analog modulation can be achieved with internal, external, or Int+Ext sources. Built-in digital communication waveform files such as 5G-NR,LTE, BlueTooth, WCDMA, WLAN, and CDMA are also offered. The device can add real-time AWGN to modulation signals while testing receiver performance, or promptly simulate noisy RF environments. It supports multi-tone signal comprising of up to 20 sine wave frequencies. This is useful for audio measurements, amplifier and receiver non-linear distortion tests, and ground and satellite communications tests.

The RF signal generator series gives an engineer an output library of the most common protocol signals and the versatility to produce custom formats to test the limits of new designs. With powerful functions and extensive frequency range, SSG5000X generators are helpful in a wide range of application fields, such as receiver and amplifier testing, IP3 measurement, digital modulation verification, radar, spur and harmonics measurements, ACPR tests and cable loss compensation, for R&D test and measurement, education, or manufacturing test.
