MG3710 Vector Signal Generator

Product picture



 The MG3710A Vector Signal Generator is a best-of-class, high-function, signal generator with excellent RF and baseband performance.

Technology applications:

Vector Signal Generator supporting frequencies of 100 kHz to 2.7/4/6 GHz
ACLR: -71 dBc (W-CDMA Test-Model 1 64DPCH, ≤+5 dBm)
Output level +23 dBm (CW, 400 MHz to 3 GHz)
Switching Time: ≤600 µs (List mode)
Two RF outputs using Dual-RF
Combines and outputs two modulation signals from one RF output using baseband addition function with easy setting and output of wanted and interference signals (modulated/delayed signals)
Built-in wideband (120 MHz) baseband signal generator

Up to two RF output connectors can be installed each with two built-in waveform memories to output two combined modulation signals from each RF connector for a maximum of four modulation signal outputs. A single MG3710A can output wanted + interference, wanted + delay, multicarrier, etc., signals, eliminating the cost of two normal generators while streamlining measurement setup and operation times.
It features a wide vector-modulation signal band and large waveform memories while supporting digital modulation signals for a wide range of communications modulation technologies. Not only is it the ideal measurement solution for key mobile communications methods, such as mobile phones, wireless LAN, etc., but it also has the performance required for developing new wideband wireless communications. With a built-in waveform pattern generator, any waveform pattern is easily selected to output modulation signals for every communications technology worldwide.

The following four types of waveform pattern can be used with the MG3710A

Built-in standard waveform patterns
Optional waveform patterns (sold separately) (MX3700xxA)
Waveforms generated by IQproducer waveform generation software (sold separately) (MX3701xxA)
IQ data generated by general-purpose signal-generation software and converted waveform patterns used by MG3710A
