Teaming Amplifiers and Signal Generators

VISTA, Calif. - Oct. 5, 2022 - PRLog -- Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new press release that explains how connecting a suitable amplifier to a signal generator can be boosted to the power levels needed in a project. Signal generators serve as sources of analog, digital, and even RF/microwave signals for test purposes. They may not always deliver enough output power for some tests, such as characterizing filters and antennas, and help may be needed. By connecting a suitable amplifier, a signal generator can be boosted to the required power levels. Finding the right combination comes down to knowing the key specifications for both units.

Laboratory amplifiers can be specified by frequency range, bandwidth, output power, and gain or input power required to reach the rated output power. A compatible signal generator must provide sufficient input power to drive a test amplifier to its rated output-power levels with minimum noise and distortion. The output of a signal generator may be adjustable over a certain power range by means of a manual control on the unit or remote computer control, such as GPIB or RS-232

Selecting an amplifier and signal generator will be narrowed down by the type of testing performed on the DUT. Specifically, it will determine the signal power levels required, with the highest power levels typically possible for the shortest pulses, as in radar component and system testing.
