Agilent / HP / Keysight 11715A
11715A AM/FM Test Source
This unit provides very flat, wide bandwidth, and low distortion amplitude or frequency modulated RF signals.
It is designed primarily for performance tests and adjustments of the Agilent 8901A/B modulation analyzer and Agilent 8902A measuring receiver, it will also serve as a high quality modulated test oscillator where its frequency ranges apply.
The major components of it are a low noise voltage controlled oscillator (VCO), 2 digital dividers, and a double-balanced mixer.
The VCO is the primary signal source, with a typical frequency range of 330 to 470MHz at the FM output.
FM is produced by directly coupling the external modulation source to the VCO's tune input, providing very wide bandwidth modulation with low phase shift.
This design also ensures very little incidential AM.
It can also be used in conjunction with an 8901A/B and an 8902A as a calibrated signal source for special applications.
In particular, the U.S. commercial FM broadcast band of 88 to 108MHz is covered by the FM divide by 4 output of it.
