HP Agilent 33120A AWG Opt 001
There are some units on eBay, but the sellers mostly don’t know and describe them as having the “Opt 001” inside, a.k.a. 33120-80001, a.k.a. 33120-66503.
The Option 001 phase lock/TCXO timebase gives you the ability to generate synchronized phase-offset signals. An external clock input/output lets you synchronize with up to three other 33120As or with an external 10-MHz clock.Continue reading “HP Agilent 33120A AWG Opt 001”
Symmetricom Rubidium Standard
This precious thing allows me to connect my GPSDO and have very stable 10MHz output, so all test equipment can use it as reference. The GPSDO itself provides very stable frequency, but has “only” an OCXO inside. So, long-time stability comes from GPS, but now short-time stablility also comes from the rubidium standard and not from the OCXO anymore. So more long- and short-time stability!Continue reading “Symmetricom Rubidium Standard”
