● Simple Touch-panel Operation ● Signal Flowcharts with Signal Block Diagrams Note: This option can only applied at ordering and cannot be retrofitted. Touching the easy-to-use GUI with hierarchical menus fetches related function and numeric input keys for simple fast settings. Two intuitive Hardware Block Chart and ARB Info screens make it easy to grasp settings, data and signal paths at a glance. The shipped MG3710A runs the Windows XP OS but this can be upgraded at ordering to Windows 7 (32 bit, Professional). ● User Data Storage on 2ndary HDD [Opt. 011] A built-in channel table with...

Dual RF & Dual Waveform Memory Dual VSG: Two RF Outputs The MG3710A supports two RF outputs (1stRF/2ndRF) max. in one unit. Moreover, different frequencies can be set independently at 1stRF and 2ndRF. Not only different frequencies but also different levels and waveform patterns can be set independently at each SG while each is tracking the other. This is convenient in the R&D phase for evaluating interference between two different systems using different frequency bands. Notes: Supported frequency bands cannot be changed after shipment. IQ input is supported only by SG1 (1stRF) and...

Basic Performance ACLR Performance –71 dBc/3.84 MHz @W-CDMA, TestModel1, 64DPCH, 2 GHz Evaluation of base station amplifiers, etc., requires excellent adjacent channel leakage power (ACLR) performance. Normally, the signal from the vector signal generator is inserted to an amplifier, and the amplifier output signal ACLR characteristics, etc., are measured with a spectrum analyzer. Instruments for these measurements require high ACLR performance. LTE FDD ACLR, 1 Carrier (E-TM1.1, Bandwidth 20 MHz) High-power Output [Opt. 041*1/071*2] W-CDMA ACLR, 1 Carrier (TestModel1, 64DPCH) *1: High Power...

High-speed Switching <–140 dBc/Hz (nom.) @100 MHz, 20-kHz offset, CW <–131 dBc/Hz (typ.) @1 GHz, 20-kHz offset, CW <–125 dBc/Hz (typ.) @2 GHz, 20-kHz offset, CW SSB phase noise is an important performance index for signal generators. For example, when using a signal generator for the following purposes, it is important to pre-confirm that the signal generator performance satisfies the measurement specifications. • Communications with narrow bandwidth of several kHz • OFDM Signals with narrow subcarrier gap • CW interference waveforms To shorten tact times on production lines the MG3710A...

High Level Accuracy Absolute Level Accuracy: ±0.5 Linearity: ±0.2 dB (typ.)*2 Supports Rubidium Reference Oscillator (Option) Excellent level accuracy and linearity are key factors with a large impact on measurement accuracy. Three reference oscillator options are supported. Select the highstability reference oscillator option [Opt. 002] when requiring high accuracy depending on the measurement conditions; for even higher accuracy, select the rubidium reference oscillator [Opt. 001]. However, if external high-accuracy reference signals are available, selecting the standard reference...
