Dear all,

Can we generate typical sine/ square/ triangular waves at 3 GHz? I DO NOT WANT MODULATED/ I-Q SIGNAL!! Just like common 33500 series Arb WG, I want to generate pure  wave forms of following-

  • Sine/ triangular/ square @ 3 GHz
  • Arbitrary signal wave for m@ 3 GHz
  • Add 3 GHz WGN to my input signal

 

My assumptions/ limited knowledge is-

 

[From N5172B datasheet]

only gives ARB waveforms upto 60 MHz

 

only gives ARB waveforms upto 160 MHz with options 653, 655, and 657

 

are used with composite modulation features in AM, FM/PM, and LF out.

Sine wave: 0.1 Hz to 10 MHz

nominal Triangle, square, ramp, pulse :  0.1 Hz to 1 MHz, nominal

 

IT SEEMS HARDLY POSSIBLE IN SIGNAL STUDIO, SO CAN WE DO IT IN MATLAB? 

BASICALLY, CAN WE GENERATE THE SAID BASE BAND WAVE FORMS @ 3 GHz?
