VSG60A — 6 GHz Vector Signal Generator

VSG60A — 6 GHz Vector Signal Generator


The VSG60A is a 6 GHz vector signal generator with 40 MHz of real-time streaming bandwidth. It offers the performance and agility of a serious vector signal generator at a fraction of the cost. It is compact, simple to use, and can generate virtually any type of signal.

SKU: VSG60A. Product category is .

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

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.
