M/A-COM Technology Solutions offers the M/A-COM TU-6401, a new lightweight low-power SIGINT microwave tuner designed for signal search and collection applications. The M/A-COM TU-6401 provides simultaneous narrowband and wideband IF (intermediate frequency) outputs centered at 160 MHz (100 MHz bandwidth) and 1 GHz (500 MHz bandwidth). The tuner's frequency range operates from 0.5 to 18 GHz and features a RF (radio frequency) down converter which is integrated with a direct digital synthesizer to uncouple tuning speed from phase noise, creating the fastest high performance tuner on the market today.

The M/A-COM TU-6401 is housed in a two-slot 6U VME package, weighing less than seven pounds. The intermediate frequency and log video outputs are suitable for direct input into an external analog-to-digital converter for special signal processing, spectral analysis and pulse parameterization. The tuner's noise figure is rated less than 15 dB (<12 db="" typical).="" sweep="" speed="" over="" the="" 0.5-18="" ghz="" tuning="" range="" per="" 500="" mhz="" steps="" is="" less="" than="" 100="" µsec="" and="" f1="" to="" f2="" step="" tune="" speed="" is="" less="" than="" 5="" µsec="" for="" any="" step="" size.="">

Also designed for single and multi-channel (frequency and amplitude coherent) systems, the M/A-COM TU-6401 tuner contains an on-board FPGA (field programmable gate array), which allows custom operating parameters that can be modified to mission requirements.
