Product Review - Hittite HMC-T2220/B Signal Generator

Published: 5th August 2014

The Hittite HMC-T2220 10 MHz to 20 GHz Synthesised Signal Generator and Hittite HMC-T2220B Portable Synthesised Signal Generator pack a punch way above their weight including the highest output power, lowest harmonic levels and broadest frequency range amongst signal generators of their size and cost.

The simplicity is stunning and does exactly what it says in the manual. Clarity of display, simplicity of user interface leading to unambiguous results makes these the most practical synthesised sig gens for any user. If not being used directly by an operator they can also easily software be software controlled via USB, GPIB or Ethernet and LabView drivers

Each are high quality, high performance, compact and lightweight all at low cost, ideal instruments for functional ATE, Test & Measurement, R&D or Laboratory applications (Efficient, accurate and flexible signal generators which provide state-of-the-art performance in the field or on the bench).

The bright yellow, easily spotted Hittite HMC-T2220B portable version can also be used battery-powered and is ideal when switching between field and on the bench use. It’s bright yellow casing is distinguishable and rugged dependable carry strap ensures it’s convenient portability. The unit comes complete with two removable batteries, plus an internal battery charger that automatically recharges the batteries when powered from AC. This gives. This makes the HMC-T2220B a leader as a portable and versatile instrument, particularly attractive for wireless/wired service installation, field testing or remote on-site maintenance applications.

With the HMC-T2220 and HMC-T2220B these easy to use, highly functional, accurate, low cost signal generators give you the coverage across not only a broad frequency range from 10MHz to 20Ghz but also across the full spectrum of applications – ATE; Test & Measurement; R&D Laboratories; Field Testing; Service Installation; ATE, Test & Measurement; R&D Laboratories et al.

So be confident when you choose your instrument form factor that performance and simplicity of operation will be consistently high. Both are compact and lightweight and the HMC-T2220 delivers a convenient desktop instrument but for truly portable (internal battery powered) field testing or remote on-site maintenance applications you have the option of the HMC-T2220B (particularly attractive for wireless/wired service installation).

Measuring the Control Loop Response of a Power Supply with an Oscilloscope

Power supplies and voltage regulators are typically designed to maintain a constant voltage over a particular current range. The supply should respond quickly to demand changes while maintaining a constant output, without excessive ringing or oscillation. To do this, power supplies are essentially amplifiers with a closed feedback loop.
