Next Generation Aim-TTi TGR2050 Series RF Signal Generators Now Available from Newark

The TGR2050 Series provides exceptional performance with new touch screen operation for improved functionality to support research and development, test and service functions

Chicago, February 4, 2020 — Newark, the Development Distributor, today announced the availability of the TGR2050 series of next generation Radio Frequency (RF) signal generators from Aim-TTi, Newark’s community of electronic design and test engineers will benefit from the small footprint and lightweight design of the new-to-market TGR2050 series, offering the best price/performance ratio in its class. These RF signal generators build upon Aim-TTi’s reputation for manufacturing high-quality and reliable products and are now available for same day shipping from Newark.

The TGR2050 series includes TGR2051 and TGR2053 RF signal generators which provide exceptional performance with high signal purity, high frequency accuracy and stability, a large signal amplitude range, low phase noise and fast amplitude and/or frequency sweeps. Extensive and flexible analogue and digital modulation capabilities make these signal generators ideal for research and development as well as test and service work.

Both models also offer improved functionality with intuitive touch screen operation. Advanced remote-control connectivity accommodates sophisticated new automated systems and compatibility with Aim-TTi’s previous RF instruments, ensuring simple integration with existing systems.

Key features of the TGR2050 series RF signal generators include:

  • High frequency accuracy and stability, high signal purity with excellent phase noise, output power levels of -127dBm to +13dBm, and flexible analogue and digital modulation capabilities.
  • A sweep function enabling signals of varying frequency and/or amplitude to test a full range of input conditions quickly and efficiently. Sweeps can be set to run in either direction, with linear or logarithmic spacing. Alternatively, list mode (accessible within the instrument or from remote interfaces) can be used to analyze the response at set frequencies and amplitude.
  • A TGR-U01 option adding an extensive range of digital modulations: FSK, GFSK, MSK, GMSK, HMSK, 3FSK, 4FSK, PSK, ASK and OOK. Built in NRZ patterns include Square wave, 7, 9, 11 and 15-bit PRBS. Digital modulation capabilities also include advanced filtering. External digital modulation signals can be applied to the carrier waveform via the MOD in/out on the rear panel.

“The new TGR2050 series of RF signal generators from Aim-TTi is an excellent addition to Newark’s market-leading test range,” said James McGregor, Global Head of Test and Tools for Newark.  “This series delivers exceptional performance at a class-leading price point. In 2019, Newark invested over $5 million in the test category and as we begin 2020 we remain committed to further increasing the breadth of our portfolio, to ensure electronic design professionals have access to the latest and most advanced test and measurement technologies.”

Customers also benefit from Newark’s in-house test and measurement specialists who provide 24 hour technical support Monday-Friday as well as access to free online resources, data sheets, application notes, videos and webinars.

Aim-TTi is a leading producer of innovative and cost-effective function generators, precision and RF instruments, including the PowerFlex, multi-range and precision power supplies.

The Aim-TTi TGR250 Series RF signal generators are available from Newark in North America, Farnell in EMEA, and element14 in APAC.
