Next Generation Aim-TTi TGR2050 Series RF Signal Generators from Newark Now Available

The TGR2050 Series provides performance with new touch screen operation for functionality to support research and development, test, and service functions.

Newark announced the availability of the TGR2050 series of next generation Radio Frequency (RF) signal generators from Aim-TTi. 

The TGR2050 series includes TGR2051 and TGR2053 RF signal generators which provide high signal purity, high frequency accuracy, and stability. As well as a large signal amplitude range, low phase noise, and amplitude and/or frequency sweeps. Analogue and digital modulation capabilities make these signal generators ideal for research and development as well as test and service work.

Both models also offer functionality with intuitive touch screen operation. Advanced remote-control connectivity accommodates new automated systems and compatibility with Aim-TTi's previous RF instruments, ensuring integration with existing systems.

Key features of the TGR2050 series RF signal generators include:
• Output power levels of -127dBm to +13dBm.
• A sweep function enabling signals of varying frequency and/or amplitude to test a full range of input conditions. Sweeps can be set to run in either direction, with linear or logarithmic spacing. Alternatively, list mode (accessible within the instrument or from remote interfaces) can be used to analyze the response at set frequencies and amplitude.
• A TGR-U01 option adding a range of digital modulations: FSK, GFSK, MSK, GMSK, HMSK, 3FSK, 4FSK, PSK, ASK, and OOK. Built in NRZ patterns include Square wave, 7, 9, 11, and 15-bit PRBS. Digital modulation capabilities also include advanced filtering. External digital modulation signals can be applied to the carrier waveform via the MOD in/out on the rear panel.

The Aim-TTi TGR250 Series RF signal generators are available from Newark in North America, Farnell in EMEA, and element14 in APAC. These RF signal generators are now available for same day shipping from Newark.
