How To Use The Model 845 Microwave Signal Generator To Perform Extremely Fast Frequency Switching Sweeps

Source: Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation

The 845 Series is comprised of low-noise and fast-switching microwave signal generators featuring fast switching speeds up to 10 us, low spurs, low harmonics, a 100 KHz to 26.5 GHz frequency range, a compact design, a 1U package, and OEM board packages. They're ideally suited for applications that require a high-quality CW microwave source with versatile modulation. This application note describes the configuration for an extremely fast digital frequency sweep using the 845 Series that can be well synchronized to external equipment using input and output triggers.
