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 +13 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.
