Designed for the most demanding manufacturing lines
Featuring fast frequency, amplitude, and waveform switching, high power with an electronic attenuator, and high reliability – all in two rack units (2RU) – N5182A MXG vector signal generator is optimized for manufacturing cellular communications and wireless connectivity components. The MXG signal generator vector provides better value for your investment by increasing throughput, improving test yield, maximizing uptime, and saving rack space. With scalable RF and baseband performance, the MXG signal generator is easily configured to meet your specific test needs.
Best-in-class RF performance for tomorrow’s component design
With the industry’s best combination of high power and distortion performance MXG vector signal generators ensure accurate component design verification. When combined with flexible signal creation tools such as Signal Studio software, the low ACLR (-73 dBc at +5 dBm for 1 carrier W-CDMA) makes the MXG a complete solution for W-CDMA, WiMAX™, and more.
Simplified self-maintenance decreases time for repair and performance verification, keeping downtime to less than 2 hours using field-replaceable assemblies.
Migrate to the new EXG X-Series signal generator and generate true performance
The new EXG offers the value and performance of the first-generation MXG, along with significant enhancements to waveform memory and bandwidth, reverse power protection and spurious levels and offers scaled up performance and functionality with options such as a real-time baseband generator, high output power, and a built-in multi-function generator.
