Introducing the Lab Brick BLX-403 USB Programmable Signal Generator

The Lab BrickTM series of synthesized signal generators bring affordability, functionality, and simplicity to the microwave test bench. Vaunix offers standard products with frequencies covering from .5 MHz up to 40 GHz with 100 Hz frequency resolution, +10 dBm output power with a minimum of 40 dB output level control. They offer advanced features such as frequency sweeping, internal/external 10 MHz reference and standard pulse modulation.

 

The BLX-403 offers both USB and Ethernet interfaces. The USB port uses a native HID interface to avoid the difficulties inherent in using older serial or IEEE-488 interfaces implemented over USB. As a result, Lab BrickTM users can get to work faster without having to install kernel level drivers, and Lab BrickTM devices can be easily used on any system that supports USB HID devices, including low-cost embedded computers using Linux or similar operating systems. The Ethernet interface is configurable for Static IP or DHCP with the ability to assign the HTTP port for extra security.

Key Features

 

  • Reliable and Repeatable solid state signal generation
  • Standard Internal/external pulse modulation
  • USB/Ethernet Control
  • 10 MHz external or internal reference
  • 100 Hz Frequency Resolution
  • Easily portable
  • Sized to fit into a single rack unit for ATE applications

 



Key Benefits

 

The BLX-403 is an affordable Signal Generator with low harmonic energy. The BLX-403 provides calibrated power control from 500 to 40000 MHz with a 100 Hz frequency setting resolution. The signal generator is easily programmable for fixed frequency operation, unidirectional or bidirectional frequency sweep and pulse modulation directly from the included Graphical User Interface (GUI). Alternatively, for users wishing to develop their own interface, Vaunix supplies LabVIEW drivers, Windows API DLL files, Linux drivers, Python examples and much more.
