Keysight / Agilent
E8257D PSG Analog Signal Generator

Keysight E8257D

Key Features

  • 100 kHz to 67 GHz
  • Address your toughest requirements with metrology-grade frequency & level accuracy with excellent distortion & spurious characteristics
  • Test high-power devices & overcome test system losses with 1 W output power
  • Address the demanding needs of Doppler radar, ADC & receiver-blocking tests with the PSG’s extremely low phase noise
  • Characterize devices & circuits by adding AM, FM, PM & pulse modulation to your signal
  • Meet test system needs up to 1.1 THz with frequency extender modules
