Test and measurement instrument manufacturer Rigol Technologies has introduced the DSG3000 series of radio frequency signal sources for use in radar tests, audio/video broadcasting, wireless communication and consumer electronics. The DSG3000, which covers up to 6Ghz output frequency, includes USB/LAN/GPIB remote control interfaces and supports the Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments command set.

The DSG3000 offers an amplitude higher than 0.5dB over a wide output amplitude range from -130dBm to +13dBm. The pulse modulation, offered as standard, provides an on/off ratio up to 80dB.

The functional range can be extended with four available options. The high stable Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator (option OCXO-A08) enhances the temperature stability of the reference frequency from 0.5ppm to 5ppb. The Power Meter Controller option makes it possible to control USB power meters from different manufacturers. This is used as an automatic flatness calibration function (cables, attenuators, amplifiers, etc.) for test systems.

The Pulse option enables the DSG3000 to act as pulse train generator, while the IQ option enables digital modulation generation. This option offers the possibility to internally generate IQ Signals and output this as RF IQ-signals or as base band I and Q Signals. In addition, external I and Q signals can be inputted and modulated to RF up to 6GHz.
