RF signal generator vs. Function generator

2 posts in this topic

What is the difference between an RF signal generator and a function generator other than frequency? Is it only the fact that an RF signal generator ONLY can create a sine wave?

Hi,

I don't know for certain, but I would assume that the RF signal generator can provide for modulating the output (in different modes ie. AM, FM, NFM, etc) from a secondary input.

Example: http://www.testequity.com/products/1405/

The function generator almost certain has the ability to generate different types of waveform, if it's an 'Arbitrary Waveform' one you'll be able to output any waveform you choose (given a limit on the number of samples/maximum frequency).

Munge.
