|Exploring the Benefits of RF Signal Generators that Provide High Output Power
Issue: KIPiS 2010 #3
One of the benefits of using highpower RF signal generator is its ability to deliver a pure, accurate signal at +25 dBm or greater to a device under test while maintaining spectral purity and level accuracy. As described in this article, these capabilities can simplify the testing of high-power amplifiers, overcome losses within automated test equipment systems, and address the attenuation of signals within long cable runs. Ultimately, the benefits of using a signal generator with high output power include reduced cost, size and weight of the resulting test system or configuration.
