NSI-MI offers the ELE-SRC microwave signal source to address a broad spectrum of measurement system requirements. The ELE-SRC provides extremely low phase noise and high output power across the full 0.01 to 20 GHz frequency range. Fast, predictable frequency switching makes it particularly suited for automated microwave measurement systems.
Designed to be used in situations where agile RF/microwave frequency tuning is required, the ELE-SRC provides a fast and accurate signal generation solution for wireless, satellite, radar, automated testing and other microwave measurement applications.

A convenient virtual control panel software application gives the user full front-panel control of the ELE-SRC Signal Source. The integrated Ethernet/SCPI remote programming interface can control every available source function and can manage a list of up to 65,000 frequencies. In remote mode, the source can synchronously step through a frequency list commanded by software or by triggers received at the rear panel trigger bus connector. The robust remote interface makes the ELE-SRC useful for a variety of applications that go beyond NSI-MI antenna measurement systems. Designed to be compatible with a wide variety of other instruments, including the NSI-MI Vector Field Analyzer™, this source can be applied to almost any microwave measurement application.
