Tabor Electronics Announces the Lucid-X Family of 40 GHz Analog Microwave Signal Generators

Up to 4 channels at half the size and half the cost of similar benchtop instruments


San Francisco, CA – June 9, 2023 – Tabor Electronics introduces the Lucid-X Series Microwave Signal Generators. The Lucid-X family of signal generators have 8 GHz, 20 GHz, and 40 GHz frequency ranges. With phase noise of -120 dBc/Hz at 1GHz (10 kHz offset), fast and high-resolution frequency switching, with +15 dBm of standard output power these instruments outperform some of the market’s most challenging requirements.

Built on Tabor’s modular technology platform, the LS-X family is available in PXIe, USB-module, rack, benchtop, and portable form factors.

Outstanding specifications

The outstanding phase noise and output power, combined with excellent amplitude accuracy, -40dBc harmonics and low spurious provides the spectral purity engineers working on next generation microwave and mmWave systems need to get their job done.

Multi-channel microwave signal generator

The unique modular multi-channel architecture of the LS-X series means that with one instrument, engineers can test mixers, RF A/D converters, amplifiers, and use it as a LO (Local Oscillator) to create microwave beams for electronic warfare and communication equipment testing.

 Full set of modulation modes

Amplitude, frequency, and phase modulation outputs are all standard on Lucid-X signal generators.  The signal generator’s pulse modulator provides narrow pulsing capability with a high on/off ratio.

High frequency signal generator in the PXI format

The Lucid-X microwave signal generator offers the best price performance microwave signal generator in the PXIe format. Now PXIe systems can be configured as mixer, amplifier, and RF A/D converter test stations at frequencies as high as 40 GHz.

Modular form factor for OEM designers

Embed a 40GHz source in your radar or communications system, with USB control and excellent temperature stability it’s ideal for systems integration.

Portability for field test

The portable form factor is the size of a tablet computer, 28.0 x 22.5 cm x 6.5 cm (11.0 in x 9.0 in x 2.6 in), making it ideal for field test requirements.

A complete signal generation solution in any format addresses a wide range of needs.

The multiple form factor Lucid-X microwave signal generators meet demanding requirements for research, design, test, and troubleshooting. On the bench, in the rack, embedded, or as part of a PXIe test system, the LS-X series elegantly solves many engineering problems.
