Dual 6GHz Signal Generator


SKU: SG6000X Category:



The DS Instruments SG6000X Dual RF Signal Generator continues to set the industry standard in affordable ultra-compact RF Signal Generation. The SG6000X enables users to generate two separate high quality RF signals easily and at extremely low cost without need for a host PC. This fully synthesized, modern fractional N synthesis device covers 7 octaves from 25 to 6000 MHz. Max output power is typically above +10 dBm and can be adjusted downward in 0.5dB steps, or continuously via the internal variable attenuator.  The crisp OLED display provides useful feedback for the user, and front control buttons provide a quick alternative to USB control. Like most of our products, the SG6000X easily fits in the palm of your hand, making it a truly portable and bench-space-saving device.
