The synthesized broadband frequency coverage and precise 1Hz frequency resolution (Option 008) are generated by indirect synthesis, enabling the HP 8360 to achieve the same low single-sideband phase noise performance as the HP 8671B, the HP 8672A, and the HP 8673 series synthesized signal generators.
The HP 8360 delivers excellent harmonic performance with harmonics at least 50 dB below the carrier from 2.2 to 20 GHz, and at least 35 dB below the carrier above 20 GHz.
High-performance pulse modulators with> 80 dB on/off ratio, and rise/fall times < 10 ns (Option 006), make the HP 8360 suitable for the most demanding pulse modulation applications. In addition to its linear AM mode (100%/V), the HP 8360 offers a scan modulation mode (10 dB/V). Both modes have de-coupled amplitude modulation capability with a 3 dB bandwidth of 100kHz, and 99.7% (50 dB) of modulation depth. Pulse and amplitude modulation capabilities can be used independently and simultaneously. The HP 8360 also offers de-coupled frequency modulation capabilities with rates up to 8 MHz.
