Key facts

  • Smallest fully integrated vector signal generator on the market
  • Excellent RF performance and space-saving design
  • Max. output level of typ. +22 dBm for compensating setup losses
  • High output frequency up to 12.75 GHz for broad applicability
  • Wear-free electronic attenuator for high reliability
  • 3 year warranty extension

Compact - Fast - Reliable

The R&S®SGS100A is an RF source designed to meet the requirements of automated test systems. It is available as a CW source or as a vector signal generator with an integrated I/Q modulator. With its frequency range of up to 12.75 GHz, the vector signal generation version covers the essential digital signals. The CW version can be used as a flexible local oscillator and for interference testing against mobile radio standards.

Features & benefits

Dedicated ATE signal source - minimized footprint

Smallest integrated signal generator for minimized system footprint

The small size of only one rack unit and 1/2 19 inch rack width per instrument saves space in the test system and reduces costs. Four RF paths up to 12.75 GHz can now be placed in the average space once needed for one RF path – saving space. This makes the R&S®SGS100A ideal for ATE applications, even where multiple RF sources are required simultaneously.

Dedicated ATE signal source - fast setting times

Fast setting times via PCIe/Ethernet interface
for high throughput

Production applications require speed during testing to ensure high throughput. The R&S®SGS100A meets this requirement in several ways. Its internal architecture and software are designed for top speed and the PCIe/Ethernet interface transmits the remote control commands at maximum speed.

Dedicated ATE signal source - high maximum levels

High maximum level for compensating losses in the setup

In a complex test system, typical level losses of several dB occur between the signal generator and the DUT. These result from long cables and from the use of switching matrices and filters. With a typical output level of +22 dBm, the R&S®SGS100A provides sufficient margin to compensate for such losses. Optional wear-free electronic attenuator up to 12.75 GHz.

High performance in the right package

High level linearity and repeatability for consistent test conditions

The R&S®SGS100A is designed for speed and compactness and offers performance previously available only from high-end benchtop instruments. But the maximum level is not everything. In calibrated test systems, level repeatability and linearity are essential for a generator. High level repeatability ensures consistent test conditions and enables lower tolerances when defining test limits.

Connectivity

Fully tuned for ATE

Though small in size, the R&S®SGMA product family has multiple remote control options. PCIe or Ethernet is recommended for maximum setting speed together with a corresponding instrument driver from Rohde & Schwarz, which is available for Windows and Linux. The standard arrangement of all the connectors on the back of the instrument as well as the broad range of available rack mount adapters enable simple integration into test systems.
