The TSG4100A Series RF Vector Signal Generator offers mid-range
performance and up to 200 MHz modulation bandwidth at an entry-level RF
signal generator price. They use a new technique to provide spurious free
outputs with low phase noise (-113 dBc/Hz at 20 kHz offset from 1 GHz
carrier) and extraordinary frequency resolution (1 μHz at any frequency).
The TSG4100A Series comes standard with analog modulation.
Convenient, in-field software upgrades allow for easy transition from analog
to more advanced vector and digital modulation capabilities, providing the
most flexible configuration and best CAPEX protection. These instruments
complement other leading mid-range RF test solutions from Tektronix, such
as the USB-based RSA306 Spectrum Analyzer and MDO4000B and
MDO3000 Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes.
The TSG4100A Series instruments use an ovenized SC-cut oscillator
(TSG410xA-M00 or E1 models) time-base, providing a 100 X improvement
in stability (and a 100 X reduction in the in-close phase noise) compared to
instruments that use a TCXO time-base.
