Generic Tracking Signal Generator Supports New and Existing Spectrum Analyzers
April 7, 2014, San Luis Obispo, California: DS Instruments offers the TG6000, a generic Tracking
that is compatible with new and legacy RF/Microwave Spectrum Analyzers. The TG6000 can provide
a TG signal from near DC to beyond 6 GHz enabling swept scalar type measurements with a Spectrum
Analyzer. In addition a fully synthesized signal source is integrated into the TG6000 allowing
its use as a standalone signal generator. The SG source has a frequency range from 25 MHz to 6 GHz.
Typical achievable dynamic range for swept response of a DUT is better than 80 dB. The frequency
response of wideband filters as well as very narrow band filters can be easily characterized.
The TG6000 is a PC compatible instrument. The built in SG function can be programed over the USB
port using industry standard SCPI commands.
A wide range of existing Spectrum Analyzers has built in support. By setting the rear panel
selector switches the TG6000 can be quickly configured for another model of Spectrum Analyzer. The
supplied PC software allows users to customize the TG6000 for their own Spectrum Analyzer if needed.
