[June 2022 status: production is severely affected by the global chip shortage!]

The DS Instruments SG12000PRO RF Signal Generator continues to set the industry standard in affordable ultra-compact RF Signal Generation. The SG12000PRO provides a pure low-harmonic signal unlike most other compact signal generators. This fully synthesized, modern fractional-N synthesis device covers from 10 to 15000MHz. Output power is adjustable in steps and continuously over the entire frequency range. The bright OLED display provides useful feedback for the user, and front control buttons provide a quick alternative to USB control. This PRO version has phase noise approximately 30dB lower than the standard SG12000, a much smaller minimum frequency step size (2Hz vs 5KHz), a more accurate output level attenuator, a wider frequency range, and higher max output power.
