9 kHz to 2000 MHz Signal Generator APSIN2010HC

The APSIN2010 is a low phase noise, fast-switching RF signal generator with µHz frequency resolution, and precisely leveled power range from -120 to typically +18 dBm. It combines excellent signal quality, high-quality analog modulation and fast switching capabilities. Flexible and simultaneous modulation allows complex signal simulation. The internal OCXO guarantees a high stability time base and can be locked to an external reference in the range of 8 to 200 MHz. The modular design simplifies maintenance and minimizes cost of ownership.
