Synthesizer Covers 1 To 113 MHz

Synthesizer applications abound with the more typical ones including wireless communications, precision clock sources, and radar and surveillance systems. To meet the evolving needs of such systems, the ultra-low-noise LN310 synthesizer covers the 1-to-310-MHz band with a +3 to +13 dBm output. It boasts 0.1-Hz resolution and a frequency switching speed below 5 s (to within 0.1 radian at new frequency). The device offers amplitude switching below 50 s (to within 0.25 dB at new frequency/amplitude). At a 100-MHz output, the synthesizer features less than 80 dBc discrete spurious with 152 dBc/Hz phase noise offset 100 kHz from the carrier. In contrast, a 310-MHz output translates into discrete spurious below 70 dBc and 142 dBc/Hz phase noise offset 100 kHz from the carrier. At 19 x 3.5 x 17.5 in. (relay rack or bench cabinet), it weighs 20 lbs. P&A: $3990; available with BCD or GPIB/USB/ LAN interfaces.
