High-speed Switching The MG3740A 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 modulations can be set independently at each SG while each is tracking the other. The all-in-one MG3740A eliminates the need for two conventional signal generators when requiring wanted + interference waveforms for evaluating Rx signal characteristics, testing intermodulation characteristics of radio equipment and amplifiers, and generating RF/LO signals for...
