Equipment and Components for the RF and Microwave industry

Broadband Noise Generators
Ethernet Control

  • Remote and Local Operation
  • 10 Hz - 18GHz
  • High Output, up to +30dBm
  • White Symmetrical Gaussian Noise
  • Flat Output
  • Fine Attenuation Control
  • Output Mute Option
  • Standard and Custom Options

The RNG series of ethernet controlled noise generators provide up to 1 watt of white Gaussian noise output in several models over the 10Hz to 18GHz frequency range, with custom options to 40GHz and are designed to be used either as laboratory instruments or as built-in system test facilities.

The noise, which is diode generated, is amplified and the level can be varied in steps from 0 to 60dB depending upon the attenuator range option chosen. Further standard options are available in addition to the ability to provide custom solutions for particular applications.

Control of the output level is via a remote GUI and can also be effected locally with the front panel controls and LCD screen.

These units also feature an output mute option.
