Information

The 6062A Synthesized RF Signal Generator (referred to as the Generator or instrument) is a fully-programmable, precision, synthesized signal Generator. The Generator is designed for applications that require good modulation, frequency accuracy, and output level performance with moderate spectral purity. It is well suited for testing a wide variety of RF components and systems including filters, amplifiers, mixers, and radios, particularly on-channel radio testing. Generator DESCRIPTION Fundamental features of the Generator are as follows: • 0.10- to 1050-MHz frequency range in 10-Hz steps • 1050- to 2100-MHz frequency range in 20-Hz steps • +16 to -137-dBm level range in 0.1-dB steps from 0.10 to 1050 MHz • +13 to -137~dBm level range in 0,1-dB steps from 1050 to 2100 MHz • AM, FM, 4>M, and Pulse, internal or external • Internal 400- and 1000-Hz modulation Oscillator • Relative frequency and amplitude • Volts/dBm conversion • Store/recall memory • instrument (or controller) prompted Software compensation • Master/slave for frequency, amplitude, and modulation functions (IEEE-488 Interface controlled.) • Fluorescent display • S^-inches high, rack mountable 1 -6. Controller Functions The Generator’s microprocessor controls all operator Interface functions, performs background operations such as status checks, and updates (strobes) the front panel displays. Whether the operator is using local control with the front panel, or remote control with the IEEE-488 Interface, the microprocessor provides self test and diagnostic capability. Economical instrument performance is achieved by using Software compensation and accuracy-enhancement circuitry. 1-7. LOCAL CONTROL The value of the basic output parameters of the Generator (i.e., amplitude, frequency, or modulation) can be controlled in three ways: • Direct numeric entry • Incrementing or decrementing the bright digit • Step-up or step-down entry where the operator can program the step size via the front panel Other controls provide selection of the modulation control, internal/'external frequency reference, instrument status, and special function modes. Refer to Tables 2-1 and 2-2 for a more complete discussion. 1-8. DISPLAY FIELD The programmed values of modulation, frequency, and amplitude are displayed in the three display fields. In addition, when the operator presses the [STATUS] key, uncal and reject entry codes are displayed. The display also prompts the operator during the Software compensation procedures. 1 -9. REMOTE-CONTROL PROGRAMMING The IEEE-488 Interface allows the Generator to be remotely controlled with any IEEE-488 bus controller. The operator can also use the instrument on the IEEE-488 bus without a controller in a listen-only or talk-only mode by selecting the appropriate Generator rear panel IEEE-488 switch settings. All instrument controls can be controlled remotely except the POWER ON/ OFF and the rear panel REF INT/EXT switches. The IEEE-488 Interface provides additional commands not available with local control, such as data transfer and individual control of internal I/O control bits. The IEEE-488 Interface allows two Generators to track amplitude, frequency, or modulation in a master/ slave configuration when the operator uses the front panel step-up and step-down entries on one of the instruments. For instance, frequency tracking is convenient for- tests involving mixers, and amplitude tracking is useful for two-tone intermodulation testing. 1-10. Frequency The specified frequency range is 0.10 to 2100 MHz. The frequency is synthesized from a 10-MHz reference and provides an output resolution of 10 Hz from 0.10 to 1050 MHz, and 20 Hz from 1050 to 2100 MHz. The relative frequency mode allows the operator to program the frequency in relation to a center frequency or an offset frequency. This is convenient for testing filters and mixers. The output frequency stability and accuracy depends on the reference, whether that reference is internal or external. 1-11. Reference The internal frequency reference is a 10-M Hz ambient crystal Oscillator. If Option -130 High Stability Reference or Option -132 Medium Stability Reference is installed, the internal Oscillator is locked to the option Oscillator. With the REF I NT / EXT switch set to EXT, the Generator can be operated from an external 1 -, 2-, 2.5-, 5-, or 10-MHz, 0.3 to 4V peak-to-peak sine or square-wave reference applied to the REF IN connector. In either position of the REF INT/EXT switch, the selected reference is available as a 10-MHz signal at the rear panel 10 MHz OUT connector. 1-12. Amplitude The Generator has two specified signal level ranges: + 16 to -137 dBm (1.4 IV to 0.1 fjY) over a frequency range of 0.10 to 1050 MHz + 13 to -137 dBm (IV to 0.033 //V) over a frequency range of 1050 to 2100 MHz. The programming limits are +17 and -147.4 dBm, which correspond to limits of 1.58V to 0.01 fjV. The level entry can be in dBm or volts, or it can be converted from one to the other. The relative amplitude mode allows the operatorio account for cascaded gain or loss by displaying the level relative to the initial setting. 1-13. Modulation The Generator has internal and external amplitude, frequency, phase, and pulse modulation capabilities. The internal modulation Oscillator is selectable between 400 and 1000 Hz. AM depths ofO to 99%are available in l%steps. FM deviation ranges of I, 10, I00,and 400 kHz are available in steps of I, IG, 100 Hz, and I kHz, respectively. <£M deviation ranges of OTO, I.0, i0.0, and 40.0 radians (rad) are available in steps of 0,001, 0.01, 0.1, and 0, l radians, respectively. The internal Pulse duty cycle is approximately 50%. External Pulse allows rates from dc up to 16 MHz,, and duty cycles from 0 to 100%.

Unfortunately this is not the service manual. But, it is still very helpful.
