Description


Applied Instruments RF Noise Source for Bench and ATE Test Applications. The NS-3 Broadband RF Noise Generator provides an extremely flat AWGN (Additive White Gaussian Noise) signal from 5 to 2150 MHz. The output level adjusts in 0.1 dB steps over a 30 dB range.

Features


  • 5 MHz to 2.15 GHz RF noise generator

  • Standard SCPI language remote control

  • We Do Not Ship to Canada

  • 30 dB of output level adjustment in 0.1 dB steps

  • On/off modulation at 3 selectable rates

  • Remote control via RS232

  • AC line cord

  • 30” 75 Ohm male BNC patch cable

  • Adjustable level (keypad, arrows, adjustable step size)

  • Selectable reference (max down, min up, reference pt.)

  • On/off pulse modulation (slow, medium, fast, none)

Specs


The NS-3 Broadband RF Noise Generator provides an extremely flat AWGN (Additive White Gaussian Noise) signal from 5 to 2150 MHz. The output level adjusts in 0.1 dB steps over a 30 dB range. The bench-top configuration is standard and an optional two unit rack enclosure is available. The RS232 remote control interface simplifies its use in automated test and factory ATE environments. The NS-3’s combination of range, versatility and value make it the ideal general purpose broad-spectrum signal source for bench and ATE applications.
