Small, low cost, and lightweight, the Aeroflex 3250 Series spectrum analyzers now include an optional 8 GHz tracking generator. Ideal for any kind of bench or lab environment, the new 3250 Series tracking generator has a frequency range of 100 kHz to 8 GHz and a level range from 0 dB down to -20 dB. An adjustable output level, with a setting resolution of 0.5 dB, provides additional flexibility when testing the frequency response and compression characteristics of amplifiers, filters, and non-linear devices.

The addition of the 8 GHz tracking generator broadens the appeal of the 3250 Series to include testing on higher frequencies used for popular wireless applications. Engineers working on WLAN, WiMAX, Wireless Broadband (WiBro), ground-satellite communications, television broadcast, military radar, and utilities, will appreciate the high performance characteristics at a cost that is thousands of dollars below competitive products.
