Agilent HP  Agilent / Hewlett Packard Signal Generator 8672A br />The 8672A Synthesized Signal Generator, with a frequency range of 2GHz to 18GHz, this generator will cover those high frequency requirements. The RF output is constantly variable from +1 dBm to -120 dBm with an output impedance of 50 ohms. Spectral purity is excellent on this generator and phase-locked loop responses are optimized to allow the 8672A to exhibit the lowest possible single-sideband phase noise. It is programmable from the front-panel or a rear HP-IB connector. The generator is capable of both AM and FM modulation internallyFrequency range: 2.0 - 18.0 GHzFrequency resolution: 1 - 3 kHz depending on band selectedTime base: <5x10-10/dayOutput level: +3 dBm -120 dBm (+8 dBm with option 008)Output level flatness: < 0.75 dBSSB phase noise (at 100 kHz offsets): -110 dBc/HzNon-harmonic spurious signals: -70 dBc specified powerInternal AM, FM modulationHP-IB interfaceOutput connector: N(f)100, 120/220, 240 Vac +5% -10%; 48-66 Hz operationWeight: 60 lb; Size: 133 mm (5.25 in)H x 425 mm (16.75 in)W x 603 mm (23.75 in)D Options: 001 = Delete Attenuator 002 = Delete Reference Oscillator 003 = 400 Hz Line Operation 004 = Rear Output with Attenuator 005 = Rear Output without Attenuator 006 = Chassis Slides 008 = 8 dBm Output P

The HP 8672 Synthesized Signal Generator has a frequency range of 2.0 to 18.0 GHz. The output is leveled and calibrated from +8 dBm to -120 dBm. Frequency, output level, modulation, and ALC modes can be remotely programmed via HP-IB.

The frequency can be tuned with one of four frequency resolutions. Tuning resolutions of 100 MHz, 1 MHz, 10 kHz, or 1 kHz are selected by front panel pushbuttons. The 1 kHz tuning resolution will give tuning resolutions of 1 kHz for frequencies from 2.0 to 6.2 GHz, 2 kHz for frequencies from 6.2 to 12.4 GHz, and 3 kHz for frequencies from 12.4 to 18.599997 GHz.

Long-term frequency stability is dependent on the time base, either an internal or external reference oscillator. The internal crystal reference oscillator operates at 10 MHz while an external oscillator may operate at 5 or 10 MHz.

The output of the signal generator is exceptionally flat due to the action of the internal automatic leveling control (ALC). External leveling control using a diode detector or a power meter to sense output power can be used to level the output at a remote load.

Both amplitude and frequency modulation capabilities are available in the signal generator using either front panel switches or remote programming. External drive signals are required for both AM and FM operation. AM depth and FM deviation vary linearly with the applied external voltage. Full scale modulation is attained with 1.0 V peak. Two ranges of AM depth are selectable: 30% and 100%. Six ranges of FM deviation are selectable: 0.03, 0.1, 0.3, 1.3, and 10 MHz. The front panel meter indicates output level, AM depth, or FM peak deviation. Meter indication mode and external leveling are selected by a front panel switch. A power meter or crystal detector may be used as the external detector. Phase-locked reference outputs of 10 and 100 MHz are available on the rear panel.

Six status indicators on the front panel make operating the signal generator easier.

The signal generator is fully programmable via the HP-IB. In the remote mode all front panel controls are disabled except the LINE and METER MODE switches.
