Upcoming Rigol DSG815/830
« on: September 30, 2015, 04:37:19 pm »
Just received this email.  Although I'm fairly critical of Rigol these days, I could use a mediacore signal gen if it's priced right.  Looks like more info next week.

The DSG800 Delivers:

9kHz - 3GHz Output Frequency
Max Output +20dBm
Standard ,2ppm Clock (opt 5ppb available)
AM/FM/?M Modulation
Optional Pulse Modulation/Pulse Train Generator

I just received the same email. I am very interested but it is a shame there is not a 6 GHz option. That is a maybe a deal killer for me.

I am going to hold my breath until they give more specs.

More details are up on Rigol UK's web site:

Looks like Rigol is going for a US$2000 price point.

Is it me or does this look like it might be an upgraded version of the DSA800's tracking gen in a box?

Why not go for a second hand Agilent ESG or R&S SME/SMIQ instead? There are many around so prices are pretty low, and they all offer better specs.

I was hoping for something half decent, but in a small form factor,  :-[

If you need 6GHz there is also a DSG3000 which offers 3 or 6GHz

I saw both gens at the EuMW in Paris last month.

The DSG800 has the same chassis as the DG1000Z.

DSG815 - 1880€ plus VAT
DSG830 - 3380€ plus VAT

official specs are here http://www.meilhaus.de/fileadmin/upload/pdf/Datasheets_english/Rigol/Rigol_DSG800.pdf

If you can live with 3GHz and aren't in a hurry then this could be an option:

Small size, similar specs as the Rigol, and often go for not much money.

Rigol just announced updates to their DSG800 line:
- New models with 2.1 and 3.6 GHz max frequency
- DSG800A models with IQ modulation
https://www.rigolna.com/news/2019/00003509/
https://www.rigolna.com/products/rf-signal-generators/dsg800/

It would be interesting to see how different they look internally. The DSG815 already had connectors labelled with IQ and IQ CLK, hinting at IQ functionality as a hardware option.
