An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release RF signal generator offers low phase noise from Thurlby Thandar Instruments, which we summarised at the time by saying "Aim-TTi has launched the TGR6000, a 6GHz RF signal generator that the company claims is priced at less than half that of the lowest-cost 6GHz generators available previously. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Signal generator for RandD, aerospace and defence from Saelig: "Saelig has introduced Apsin20G, a low-noise, ultra-fast-switching microwave signal generator covering a frequency range from 10MHz up to 20GHz, which simplifies synchronising within test environments.".

In January 2011, we covered the news from Thurlby Thandar Instruments - take a look at DC power supplies cover voltages up to 300V which says: "Sorensen has extended the DLM600 series of high-density programmable DC power supplies to cover voltages up to 300V and currents up to 75A. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Thurlby Thandar Instruments, Power supply for benchtop or rack-mounted systems, as well as RS offers Tektronix frequency counters and timers from RS Components, and Spectrum analyser with high wavelength range from Yokogawa - Test and Measurement.
