Hittite Press Release - April 20, 2010
Hittite Launches Industry's First Battery Powered,
Industry's First Battery Powered, Portable 20 GHz Synthesized Signal Generator! 10 MHz to 20 GHz Frequency
Performance & 4 Hours of Continuous Battery Operation
Portable 20 GHz Synthesized Signal Generator
MA, 4/20/10 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for
communication & military markets, has launched the
HMC-T2100B, the first battery powered, 10 MHz to 20 GHz Portable Synthesized Signal Generator. Designed to
fulfill signal generation needs in the field or on the bench, and priced at only $14,998, the
HMC-T2100B provides the highest output power, lowest harmonic levels and broadest frequency range compared
with portable signal generators of similar size and cost.
Ideal for use in automated test and measurement
environments, research, and development laboratories, the
HMC-T2100B is a compact and lightweight frequency generator that delivers up to +27 dBm of CW output power in
0.1 dB steps over a 40 dB dynamic range. Harmonic rejection is better than -39 dBc at 1 GHz and spurious products
are better than -65 dBc at 10 GHz. Phase noise is -113 dBc/Hz @ 100 kHz offset from 1 GHz with insignificant
deviation over the temperature range of 0 to +35 °C. The broad frequency range of 10 MHz to 20 GHz covers all
major communication bands with frequency resolution of 10 kHz, 0.1 dB power resolution, and fast switching speed
of 300 µs.
Internal rechargeable batteries allow for 4 hours of continuous operation, making the
HMC-T2100B a portable and versatile instrument, which is particularly attractive for wireless/wired service
installation, field testing, or remote on-site maintenance applications.
Built on a foundation of
Hittite's high quality and market leading MMICs, this versatile portable signal generator features multiple
interfaces (USB, GPIB and Ethernet) and innovative control software ensuring seamless integration within multiple
test environments. An installation disk that accompanies each unit includes all of the drivers required to
remotely control the device as well as a user friendly GUI interface compatible with Windows XP® or Windows Vista®
operating systems. User control is facilitated via pull down menus that allow programming of single or swept modes
in frequency and/or power. Integration of multiple units within a production test environment is easy and
HMC-T2100B Synthesized Signal Generator can be ordered via the company's e-commerce site or direct purchase

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...
