will a tracking generator produce the same signal shape on the spectrum analyser that a sweep generator produces on a scope? I thought a tracking generator could completely replace a sweep generator in testing a band pass filters and If's. I see the sweep generator uses a detector where a tracking generator doesn't. Can i use a tracking generator with my spec an instead of a sweep generator and scope or are they completely diferent beasts. I can't find any data on the uses or interchangeability.
