   KEYSIGHT N5182B   Description / Specification:    
KEYSIGHT N5182B 3/6 GHz MXG X-Series Vector Signal Generator

The Keysight N5182B MXG X-Series Vector Signal Generator is used to test radar receiver sensitivity, characterize ADC or mixer SNR, or find receiver out-of-band rejection capability. You’ll get excellent results with industry-leading phase noise of -146 dBm at 1 GHz and spurious performance of -96 dBc at 1 GHz. With EVM of less than 0.4 percent (802.11ac and LTE) and factory-equalized 160 MHz RF bandwidth with flatness of less than ± 0.2 dB, the MXG enables testing and characterization of multicarrier power amplifiers or wideband receivers and components, such as those used in 802.11ac WLAN designs.

Frequency Range: 9 kHz (5 MHz IQ mode) to 3 GHz (Option 503), 9 kHz (5 MHz IQ mode) to 6 GHz (Option 506).
Resolution: 0.001 Hz.
Phase offset: Adjustable in nominal 0.1 ° increments.
Output Settable range: +30 to -144 dBm.

Channel Bandwidth
Channel Bandwidth is the bandwidth over which power is measured. This is usually the bandwidth in which almost all of the power of a signal is contained.

Jitter in technical terms is the deviation in or displacement of some aspect of the pulses in a high-frequency digital signal. Jitter is the time variation of a periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. Jitter may be observed in characteristics such as the frequency of successive pulses, the signal amplitude, or phase of periodic signals. Jitter is a significant, and usually undesired, factor in the design of almost all communications links (e.g., USB, PCI-e, SATA, OC-48). In clock recovery applications it is called timing jitter.

Overshoot is the distortion that follows a major transition; the difference between the peak power point and the pulse-top amplitude computed as a percentage of the pulse-top amplitude.

Rise Time
Rise time refers to the time required for a signal to change from a specified low value to a specified high value, usually 10 and 90 percent of pulse-top amplitude (vertical display is linear power).
