SG30000L Signal Generator 30GHz

Introducing the new compact SG30000L microwave generator!

This all-new hardware version of our standard 30GHz signal generator offers the same low-noise performance of the SG30000PRO, but without the costly switching for a low frequency band. Like our SG6000L product line, this microwave generator is fully programmable via SCPI commands, or the front panel interface, making it more flexible than any competing product. High output power, wide bandwidth, and ultra-compact size make this the best value 30GHz source on the market. Great for test setups and automated applications where low frequency output is not required. The new 2023 hardware design lowers both harmonic and sub-harmonic levels greatly.
