Aim-TTi has launched the TGR6000, a 6GHz RF signal generator that the company claims is priced at less than half that of the lowest-cost 6GHz generators available previously.

The TGR6000 covers a frequency range from 10MHz to 6,000MHz at an output level of between -110dBm and +7dBm, adjustable in 0.1dB steps.

The frequency resolution is 10Hz and the internal timebase stability is better than 1ppm.

The generator offers low phase noise, residual FM and spurious signal responses.

An external reference can be used where higher accuracy is required.

User level compensation tables can be loaded in order to calibrate an entire test setup.

The TGR6000 is intended for CW signal applications and has no built-in modulation capability.

However, a sweep generation system is included that covers the full frequency range and incorporates a sophisticated step or list sweep covering both frequency and amplitude.

In step sweep, the frequency and/or amplitude are stepped between two fixed points using up to 1,000 steps, which can have a fixed time period or a triggered interval.

Sweeps can be linear or logarithmic, up or down.

In list sweep, frequency and amplitude points are defined within a table, enabling any sweep pattern to be used.

Full digital remote-control facilities are available through the RS232, USB and LAN (Ethernet) interfaces and an additional GPIB interface is optionally available.

The TGR6000 is housed in a half-rack 2U high case with backlit LCD display and keyboard in addition to a spin-wheel control.

It costs GBP2,850 (plus VAT) in the UK.
