By Business Wire News


Technavio has announced the top seven leading vendors in their recentglobal signal generator marketreport. This market study also lists four segments that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the report, the global signal generator market is characterized by the presence of well-diversified international, regional, and local vendors. The new local vendors in the market are facing intense competition from international vendors in terms of quality, durability, reliability, and technological innovations. The competitive environment in this market will intensify as international players are acquiring regional or local players.

“Prominent vendors like Keysight Technologies, National Instruments, Agilent Technologies, Anritsu, B&K Precision, Keithley Instruments, Rohde & Schwarz, and Tektronix are trying to endure the growing competition in the market by investing significantly to upgrade their technological capabilities to attract new customers,” says Sunil Kumar Singh, lead semiconductor equipment analyst from Technavio.

The report also states that despite the presence of some established players, end-users continue to lack a proper understanding regarding the signal generator’s function and its use. As a result, the manufacturers need to impart proper training to end-users.

Top seven signal generator market vendors

Keysight Technologies

Keysight Technologies is one of the leading vendors offering a wide selection of signal generators from baseband to 67 GHz. The company offers frequency extension of up to 1.1 THz. The products also address the requirements for design and manufacture of radio transceivers and its components and applications with a range of low-frequency navigation signals for the radar and satellite systems. The products offer synthesized frequency accuracy and stability along with high-level accuracy and remote programmability.

Rohde & Schwarz

The baseband, microwave, and RF signal generators from Rohde & Schwarz perform exclusively in terms of signal quality, usability, and flexibility. The company’s generators offer a wide range of frequency (up to 43.5 GHz), modulation bandwidth up to 2 GHz, and support all major communications and digital wireless standards. Test and measurement, broadcasting, secure communications, radio monitoring, and IT security are the five product segments of Rohde & Schwarz.

The test and measurement segment focuses on designing, manufacturing, and marketing of a wide range of electronic test and measurement equipment. The company is one of the leading manufacturers of test and measurement equipment. It partners with key industries to undertake test and measurement tasks in radio communications.

National Instruments

National Instruments’ signal generators include versatile AWGs, RF vector signal generators, and function generators. The user can improve the prototyping and test systems with world-class performance and high system throughput by integrating the signal generators. The signal generators can generate simple sine and clock signals and complex modulated communications waveforms.


Anritsu provides wireless and wired equipment solutions for RF, optical fiber test, and microwave and monitoring systems like protocol test solutions and complete RF production management and quality assurance systems for the pharmaceutical, food, and cosmetic industries. Its products include X-ray, checkweighers for food processing lines, inspection systems for eradicating metal fragments, stones, and other materials required in the food processing process. The company provides communications and information solutions such as river management procedures and bandwidth controllers for network consistency and remote monitoring systems for waterworks. It serves financial institutions and video providers. It also offers fiber optical and ultra-high-speed devices for communication. In addition, the company is involved in welfare services, real estate leasing, and logistics.

The company’s network of channel partners and distributors includes Absolute Analysis, Hutton, Metric Test, Primus Electronics, Talley, TestMart, and Toronics. It has R&D facilities in the US, Europe, and Japan.


Tektronix’s product portfolio includes power analyzers, digital multi-meters, spectrum analyzers, signal generators, bit error rate testers, protocol analyzers, logic analyzers, oscilloscopes, RF power meters, frequency counters, and timers, DC power supplies, coherent optical solutions, video test, probes and accessories, and Keithley products. It also offers different technologies like a memory test, Ethernet, mobile high-definition link (MHL), peripheral component interconnect (PCI) express, USB, thunderbolt, and display port. In the signal generator market, the company focuses on minimizing production costs by improving the production efficiency and reducing administrative expenses. It also focuses on three pillars: innovation, efficiency, and sustainability. Innovation refers to the continuous development of its existing products, refinement of its products, and improvement of its manufacturing processes and services to its customers.

Tektronix has introduced TSG4100A series and entered crowd market for RF signal generators. The company has announced models with frequencies of 2 GHz, 4 GHz, and 6 GHz. Each model is available, as an analog generator, with upgrades that add digital modulation.


Giga-tronics, a signal generator manufacturer, has been solving the radar and electronic warfare issues. Apart from signal generators, the company also manufactures other test and measurement equipment like oscilloscope and broadband switching matrices. In November 2015, the company received an order of $1.4 million for advanced signal generators such as an arbitrary waveform generator.
