The model range of AKIP™ RF generators has been replenished with a new model AKIP-3211. The new model of the AKIP-3211 high-frequency signal generator has an output frequency range from 9 kHz to 13.6/20 GHz (available in the AKIP-3211-F85 modification), supports AM, FM and FM modulation, works with external power sensors to control the output signal level, and also has optional capabilities for generating signals with pulse modulation and the formation of a sequence of pulses (Pulse Train).
A built-in thermostatically controlled reference oscillator (OCXO ±2×10 -7 ) as standard provides a highly accurate and highly stable output signal. The output signal level is normalized in the range from -20 to +25 dBm, while the resolution of the setting is 0.01 dB. The hardware option LP- attenuator module 0…110 dB allows to expand the range of the RF output level up to -130 dBm ... +25 dBm. Phase noise power density does not exceed -120 dBc/Hz at a 20 kHz offset from a 1 GHz carrier.
Structurally, the generator is made in the form of a desktop monoblock. The generator can be mounted in 19" racks using an optional mounting kit.
The AKIP-3211 signal generator can work in conjunction with USB power sensors to control the output power and automatically correct the output level (AGC) of the generator depending on the measured power at the test object. Also, a USB power sensor together with a generator can be used as an independent measuring channel for measuring RF power. The generators are compatible with the U2000A (Keysight) and NRP6A (Rohde and Schwarz) series sensors.
The second channel of the generator is intended for issuing auxiliary low-frequency oscillations. Low-frequency signals are generated in the range of 0.1 Hz ... 1 MHz for a sinusoidal waveform, and 0.1 Hz ... 20 kHz for a rectangular, sawtooth waveform with a level of up to 3 V pk-p, or a constant bias level (DC) is issued.
