Description

The U3035P Option 162 distribution network enables sixteen Agilent PSG signal generators to operate in a phase locked and coherent mode at a common frequency. It operates in two frequency bands: 250 MHz to 3.2 GHz, and > 3.2 GHz. The upper frequency limit is determined by the frequency range option selected on the PSG (20, 32, 40, 50 or 67 GHz for the E8257D and 20, 32 or 44 GHz for the E8267D).

The distribution network takes an oscillator signal from one “master” signal source, amplifies it and distributes it to multiple other “slave” signal sources. The distribution amplifier has two modes of operation: Distribution Mode and Calibration Mode. The mode of operation is manually selected with a switch on the front panel or remotely over a 9 pin control line interface.
 

Required signal generator options:

  • E8257D PSG analog signal generator: E8257D-HCC
  • E8267D PSG vector signal generator: E8267D-HCC

This option cannot be added as a product upgrade – only available at time of purchase.
