The TSG4100A Series RF Vector Signal Generator offers mid-range performance and up to 200 MHz modulation bandwidth at an entry-level RF signal generator price. They use a new technique to provide spurious free outputs with low phase noise (-113 dBc/Hz at 20 kHz offset from 1 GHz carrier) and extraordinary frequency resolution (1 μHz at any frequency). The TSG4100A Series comes standard with analog modulation. Convenient, in-field software upgrades allow for easy transition from analog to more advanced vector and digital modulation capabilities, providing the most flexible configuration and best CAPEX protection. These instruments complement other leading mid-range RF test solutions from Tektronix, such as the USB-based RSA306 Spectrum Analyzer and MDO4000B and MDO3000 Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes.
The TSG4100A Series instruments use an ovenized SC-cut oscillator (TSG410xA-M00 or E1 models) time-base, providing a 100 X improvement in stability (and a 100 X reduction in the in-close phase noise) compared to instruments that use a TCXO time-base.
