Signal Path Review -- Tabor Lucid Series RF Signal Generator

Signal Path Reviewer Shahriar Shahramian reviews the Lucid 12HGz 4-channel RF Signal Generator, noting in one section, “Look at all these cutouts. They are metalized, providing high levels of RF isolation. This type of design takes a long time, and is usually expensive – it’s very nice to see, and contributes directly to the Tabor unit's high performance in a compact form factor.”
