Product Highlights

Product Overview


The Anritsu MG3696A is a broadband high performance Signal Generator that covers RF and microwave frequencies from 2 to 65 GHz (or optionally from 0.01 GHz) in a single instrument. For millimeter wave frequencies, the MG3696A coverage can be extended up to 110 GHz or beyond, with external multipliers. The MG3696A Signal Generator is extremely configurable, and able to meet your exact need, minimizing your initial investment. The MG3696A is also very adaptable with a comprehensive list of upgrades for your future needs.

The MG3696A offers all the capabilities of a high-end microwave generator at the highest performance level. It leverages the technology leading phase noise performance of its predecessor.

It offers outstanding output power with the lowest spectral purity content. Frequency can be swept digitally or via an analog ramp sweep. A CW frequency could be phase offset or locked within an external phase lock loop. Amplitude, Frequency, Phase, and Pulse modulations are available externally or internally-driven. An external software package simplifies the use of these modulations simultaneously, and allows the down-loading of user-defined modulation waveforms. For IQ modulation, the IF input option allows the easy up-conversion of an externally IQ-modulated RF signal.

Features of the Anritsu MG3696A include:

  • Frequency Range: 2 to 65 GHz (or optionally 0.01 GHz to 65 GHz)
  • Resolution - 0.01 Hz
