Abstract : An RF test signal generator including a driving oscillator, a pulse generator for generating narrow spikes at the oscillator frequency (such as a step recovery diode), a modulator and an attenuator. Since the very narrow pulse exhibits nearly constant amplitude in the frequency domain, a constant amplitude comb spectrum with frequency spacing at the oscillator frequency is generated so as to facilitate automated testing techniques.
