  • 18900


The RF Explorer Signal Generator (RFE6Gen) is a powerful, wideband, fully programmable RF signal generator. It is the perfect companion for the RF Explorer Spectrum Analyzer product line.

As a standalone unit, the RFE6Gen can generate CW (continuous wave) and sweep signals by selecting the desired menu options. When connected to a PC, it can be fully programmed with the RF Explorer for Windows software tool. Furthermore, the unit can work as a powerful tracking generator when used with an RF Explorer spectrum analyzer connected to the same PC. This combination offers full SNA (scalar network analyzer) capabilities -- which allows characterization of filters, amplifiers and any 2-port RF device.
