RF Signal Generators With Built in RF Power Detectors

Windfreak Technologies designed and sold the world’s first low-cost, USB controlled RF signal generator plus RF power detector back in 2011 called the SynthNV.  The combination gave users the ability to measure RF power at the same time as generating RF signals.  Even better, since both circuits are combined, the device could drive “set and measure” sweeps on its own at high speeds for applications like real-time scalar network analysis.
