Original Press Release:
6-18 GHz Signal Generator Offers Up to 80 dB of Power Control Range
Newburyport, MA – Vaunix Technology Corporation, a manufacturer of programmable, USB powered test equipment, added a new signal generator to their family of Lab Bricks, the LMS-183DX. This new product covers a frequency range of 6-18 GHz in a rugged, portable, palm-sized package.
The LMS-183DX has a power control range of 80 dB, +10 to -70 dBm, from the 6 to 13 GHz frequency range and a power control range of 65 dB, +10 to -55 dBm, from the 13 to 18 GHz frequency range. This unit typically operates with a voltage stand wave ratio (VSWR) at 1:4:1 (2.0:1 maximum) and weighs less than one pound. Maximum harmonics are -25 dBc (-38 dBc typically) when the LMS-183DX is set to +10 dBm output power.
The LMS-183DX is controlled and powered through USB with advanced features such as phase-continuous linearfrequency sweeping, internal/external 10 MHz reference, and optional pulse modulation. This programmable signal generator can be operated through the included, easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) and retails at $3,499.
Easily programmed for ATE applications, the LMS signal generators are a cost effective solution whether you are in engineering, the production test lab, or in the field. Units are ROHS compliant and can be used with any PC or laptop computer with USB 2.0 port (or powered USB hub) and Windows operating system. Lab Brick Signal Generators are provided with easy to use Lab Brick GUI software, 32 and 64 bit API DLL files, LabVIEW and Linux compatible drivers.
