KEYSIGHT TECHNOLOGIES N5186A MXG next-generation, high-performance compact, four-channel vector signal generator (VSG) is capable of signal generation up to 8.5GHz with 960MHz of modulation bandwidth per channel. Unit provides the multiple, individually complex signals needed for dense wideband multichannel applications. Product addresses the demand for higher frequency coverage in evolving technologies such as wireless communications and radar applications using complex modulation schemes like MIMO, beamforming and multiplexing to maximize data throughput. Unit simplifies complex setups with reduced external connections and up to four channels in a compact 2U form factor. Product features an embedded reflectometer and delivers accurate signals to the device under test (DUT).
