The Model 865 generators provide an accurately flat signal range and high spurious suppression. Advanced frequency synthesis combines the fastest switching speeds with ultra-low SSB phase noise and fine resolution of both frequency and power.
The standard Model 865 includes intra/pulse chirp modulations, frequency chirps, pulse modulation with programmable patterns, and phase modulation. The signal generator allows fast analog and digital sweeps including flexible list sweeps, where frequency, power and dwell times can be set individually. A flexible triggering capability simplifies synchronization within sophisticated test environments.
All Model 865’s operate with an ultra-stable temperature compensated frequency reference (OCXO) to ensure minimal drift, and can be phase-locked to an external reference. Additionally, optimum phase synchronous signals can be achieved by bypassing the internal reference and feeding a 1-GHz signal directly as reference.
The compact unit allows full front panel control via a touch panel display. Available options include: extended range low power output, ultra-fast switching, enhanced close-in-phase noise, modulation features, and battery operation for field or isolated work, GPIB interface, etc.
