Saelig Debuts Feature-rich Compact 3/6/12GHz RF Analog Signal Generators

The Lucid range has been designed specifically for solving RF applications that demand outstanding dynamic range, fast switching speed, and easy remote programming with seamless system integration, all in a compact form-factor.

Fairport, NY:  Saelig Co. Inc. has announced Tabor’s Lucid LS RF Analog Signal Generators, offering advanced features and industry-leading performance in a compact form factor. The three models,  LS3081M (3GHz), LS6081M (6GHz) and LS1291M (12GHz), provide single-channel high-purity sine waves in a small footprint module.  Featuring extremely fast switching speed, superior signal integrity, and very low distortion, the Lucid range of RF generators also features all the necessary modulation signals required for testing modern analog communication systems.  Built-in SPI and micro-USB interfaces allow for external control of the generators.

With a switching speed of less than 100us, the Lucid Series can meet many advanced test and measurement applications with high signal quality and excellent phase noise specs  (-145dBc/Hz at 100MHz, -132dBc/Hz at 1GHz, at 10 kHz carrier offset, typical).   Since the ability to create signal bursts and chirps has become necessary for many aerospace and defense applications such as radar and wireless systems, the Lucid series is equipped with modulation modes such as AM, FM, PM, Phase Modulation, and Sweep.  Almost any pulse modulation is possible, whether for “narrow” or “standard” pulse needs.  The series also offers multi-instrument synchronization capabilities.

Lucid generators come with dedicated software to control all of the instrument functions, modes, and features via a graphical user interface (GUI).  A complete set of drivers also allows users to write custom applications in various environments including LabVIEW, Python, CVI, C++, VB and MATLAB.  Dlls are provided to allow linking with other Windows-based API’s.  Additionally, low-level SCPI commands can be used to control the generators in Windows, Linux or Macintosh applications.

The Lucid range has been specifically designed in a compact form-factor to fit applications that demand outstanding dynamic range, fast switching, pure RF signals with easy remote programming for seamless system integration. Designed and made in Israel by Tabor Electronics, a world-leading provider of high-end signal sources, the Lucid series of RF signal generators will be available in 2018Q4 from Saelig Company Inc. Fairport, NY.  For detailed specifications, free technical assistance, or additional information, please contact Saelig at 1-888-7SAELIG, via email:, or visit
