30GHz Premium Signal Generator


SKU: SG30000PRO Category:


[April 2023 update: This is currently a chip shortage affected model!]

A low-harmonic, low-noise, wideband microwave generator up to 30GHz.

This PRO version of our 30GHz model offers a single multi-band RF output port, harmonic filtering, an oven-controlled frequency reference, and more robust output level control than the standard SG30000L. Like our SG6000 product line, this microwave generator is fully programmable via SCPI commands, or the front panel interface making it more flexible than any competing product. With an all-new low-phase-noise synthesizer, the SG30000PRO is aimed at phase-noise sensitive applications in C, X, Ku, K, and Ka-band development, testing, and converting.

New Rev 9 hardware (March 2023) improves harmonic levels, adds output phase control,  and lowers noise!
