Does anyone know the name of lab equipment that can generate specific high frequency currents (not radio/signal frequency)?

Does anyone know the name of lab equipment that can generate specific high frequency currents?

I need a AC voltage generator that can produce a current in the 1400 MHz frequency range that can be manually tuned.

    $\begingroup$ There must be a fair number of products out there. You need to be more specific about things like tunable frequency range, current level, power/voltage level or load impedance, waveform quality. etc. $\endgroup$ Oct 11, 2020 at 19:44
  • $\begingroup$ Honestly if there is then I can't find any. Everything seems to be 30MHz max? Voltage and current I'm not fussed about, not sure on waveform quality. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ If it was called "RF Signal Generator," and if it covered 1400MHz, would that meet your need? I don't know where you were looking that you couldn't find one over 30MHz. A quick Google search turned up multiple different ones for me that go from DC all the way up to 4 or 6 GHz. Mind you, they don't look cheap. If you need cheap (as opposed to NIST-traceable calibration, etc.) then maybe you can build something for yourself from plans in some ARRL Handbook. $\endgroup$ Oct 11, 2020 at 20:00
  • $\begingroup$ what search term are you using? $\endgroup$
