LMS-183CX

6 – 18 GHz USB Programmable RF Signal Generator with Chirp Capability

The LMS-183CX is an affordable Signal Generator with fast internally or externally triggered chirp signal modulation. The LMS-183CX provides calibrated power control from 6 to 18 GHz (C-, X-, Ku- and K-band) with a 100 Hz frequency setting resolution. This USB powered and programmed Lab Brick signal generator is easily programmable for fixed frequency operation, unidirectional or bidirectional frequency sweep, and pulse and chirp modulation directly from the included Graphical User Interface (GUI). Alternatively, for users wishing to develop their own interface, Vaunix supplies LabVIEW drivers, Windows API DLL files, Linux drivers, Python examples, and other software solutions. Custom versions of the LMS-183CX Lab Brick signal generator can be specifically designed for unique radar receiver bandwidths with similar high-performance chirp signal modulation features.

 

Lead time 1-2 weeks
