Signal Generators (Vector Signal Generators - VSG)

Vector signal generator solutions from Texas Instruments

Reference Designs


Signal generators, or vector signal generators (VSGs), are used in a wide variety of applications including cellular communications, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, GPS, satellite communication, radar and electronic warfare.

TIs reference designs demonstrate high performance, low power, integrated frequency generation used in vector signal generators. TI designs also explain how to introduce various high performance amplifiers, high speed data converters and clock generators in high performance vector signal generators.

TI’s high speed converters with superior linearity, low noise, crosstalk and TI DSPs are best suited to implement the creation of baseband signal in the vector signal generators. TI’s low noise, wideband, integrated frequency synthesizers are a great choice for local oscillator generation and best suited for today’s vectors signal generators with stringent spectral purity (Phase noise, harmonics, spurs, etc.) performance requirement. TI’s ultra-low noise jitter programmable clock oscillators are an ideal choice to provide reference clock to these synthesizers. TI also offers precise power management solutions for all VSG form factor variants (benchtop, handheld and modular).
