Introducing the SG30000PRO, our highest-performance device yet!

A low-phase-noise 0.05 to 30GHz premium microwave signal generator.

After years of development DS Instrument’s new ultra-wideband microwave signal generator has been released. The PRO version offers a single multi-band RF output port, harmonic filtering, optional 18GHz input power meter, and more robust output level control than the standard SG30000L. Like our SG6000 product line, this RF 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 4 (July 2020) delivers our highest output power, most attenuation options, and lowest noise!

SG30000PRO REV 4 Device Features:

  • RF output covering 0.05 – 30GHz (single output port)
  • Calibrated power control (LF – 22Ghz): -45dBm to +15dBm (step & vernier)
