                                    INTRODUCTION

The Wavetek Model 3520 is a rugged, microprocessor
controlled, GPIB-addressable Signal Generator covering the
frequency range of 1 to 2080 MHz.

All instrument parameters are set via either front-panel
keyboard entry or GPIB (IEEE-488) Interface. Instrument
settings and parameters are displayed on three alphanumeric
vacuum-fluorescent displays.

A flexible cursor system allows a selected digit of a
parameter to be incremented, or the parameter may be
incremented by a user-defined step size. A
relative/reference function may be used to test with respect
to a specified parameter value.

Nonvolatile memory locations allow up to 32 complete front
panel settings to be quickly stored and recalled in any order.

1.1.1	FREQUENCY CHARACTERISTICS

The carrier frequency may be set to a resolution of 100 Hz
from 1 to 1040 MHz, and 200 Hz from 1041 to 1080 MHz. The
accuracy of the instrument is based on a crystal-controlled
Oscillator which serves as a stable frequency reference,
enabling the instrument to provide high-stability signals to
an accuracy of 0.001% over its specified frequency range.
This accuracy includes possible errors due
to short-term drift, long-term drift, incidental FM, and
variations due to line voltage changes and temperature
changes. The accuracy of the instrument can be imp roved by
using the optional External Reference input, the	optional
Internal/External

Reference, and/or the optional High Stability Internal
Reference.

1.1.2	MODULATION

The instrument features both internal and external AM and FM
capabilities. The internal modulation source may be set to
any 1 Hz multiple between 80 Hz and 999 kHz and 10 Hz
multiple between 1 kHz and 10 kHz. FM deviation can be set
to any desired value up to 100 kHz. AM depth is specified
from 0 to 90%.

The internal and external sources may be used simultaneously
to produce complex modulation. An automatic level control
(ALC) function is provided to normalize external sources.

1.1.3	OUTPUT LEVEL FEATURES

The 50 ohm calibrated output of the instrument is leveled to
±2.0 dB across the 1 to 2080 MHz frequency range. RF output
level is settable f rom +10 dBm to -13 7 dBm with a
resolution of 0.1 dB.

The level may be read out in dBm or in Volts RMS. Reverse
power protection to 50 watts is standard.
