All Signal Hound devices are calibrated to better-than-box specs during production. However, if you require a signed calibration certificate with a printed packet of calibration data, you will need to select it below:

Our standard warranty is for a 2-year time period. An extended warranty is available up to a total of five years (2-year warranty plus 3 additional years). Extended warranties are calculated at 6% of the product cost, per year.

The VSG60A features a low phase noise, agile local oscillator with 200 µs switch time, enabling frequency hopping spread spectrum testing. A dual 14-bit DAC runs at 2x or 3x the I/Q symbol rate using digital oversampling to provide a flat, clean baseband; and a digitally adjustable internal VCTCXO ensures frequency errors are kept to a minimum over temperature, or an external 10 MHz input may be used for zero ppm frequency error. A trigger output is also available to synchronize your VSG60A with other test equipment.

Preprogrammed modulation types

CW AM, FM, Pulse, Multitone, Sweep, AWGN, FSK, GFSK, OOK, ASK, MSK, GMSK, BPSK, DBPSK, QPSK, DQPSK, Pi/4DQPSK, OQPSK, 8-PSK, 16-PSK, 16-QAM, 64-QAM, 256-QAM, 1024-QAM, Bluetooth LE, 802.11a/n

Digital modulation impairments

Channel, AWGN, I/Q Offset, Sample rate multiplier, Freq offset, Timebase multiplier

Custom modulation

Use the API to continuously stream I/Q data to the VSG60A at an arbitrary sample rate up to 51.2 MSPS, or use the software to load a CSV, binary short int, or binary floating point I/Q file. Corrections are automatically applied as the data is streamed to the VSG60A.

  1. Marcelo Cárdenas A.

    Do you have some distributor in Ecuador?
    I will need a demo of Vector Signal Generator.
