The 2500B Microwave Signal Generator is a high-performance CW and swept frequency signal source covering the frequency range of 100 kHz to 50 GHz (depending of the model), with high signal purity, high output power, fast frequency switching speed and a full suite of analog modulation capability. The 2500B Microwave Signal Generator features high time base stability, frequency resolution of 0.001 Hz and ultra-low phase noise, harmonics and spurious for applications requiring clean pure signals. Modulation capability includes amplitude modulation (AM), frequency modulation (FM), phase modulation and high-speed pulse modulation (PM) with pulse width as low as 10 ns. Remote programming capability is over GPIB (IEEE-488) or Ethernet LAN.

Advanced Synthesizer Technology
The 2500B series Microwave Signal Generator utilizes new Advanced Synthesizer Technology that delivers excellent close in phase noise performance of -77dBc @ 100 Hz and -96dBc @ 1KHz and an ultra low phase noise performance of -109 dBc @ 10 kHz and 100 kHz offset on a 10 GHz carrier frequency.

Faster to Program
Every 2500B Microwave Signal Generator comes with Spanawave/Giga-tronics Automation Xpress, a PC based software package designed for enhanced user interface and automatic test systems. The Automation Xpress CD includes a full-featured plug-and-play driver and soft front panels to provide the ATE system integrator with everything needed to get up and running fast. A comprehensive LIST mode, Command-Line interpreter with script and loop capability, and GPIB traffic monitoring are just a few of the many features a test system programmer will appreciate when developing and debugging Test Program Sets.
