Berkeley Nucleonics offers a diverse line of microwave signal sources and microwave signal generators with a new fast switching option for R&D, radar simulation and testing, local oscillator development, commercial communications (like satellite and microwave link), and microwave component testing applications.

Analog Devices offers the ADF4371 microwave wideband synthesizer with an integrated VCO. This device allows implementation of fractional-N or Integer N phase-locked loop (PLL) frequency synthesizers when used with an external loop filter and an external reference frequency. The wideband microwave voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) design allows frequencies from 62.5 MHz to 32 GHz to be generated with an output frequency ranging from 4000 MHz to 8000 MHz.

With its multi-channel 250 ps-resolution timing capabilities, Berkeley Nucleonics’ model 575 digital delay/pulse generator is ideal for laser experimentations involving triggering, gating, delaying, pulsing, or syncing. It can also be used in external clock syncing, laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), PIV, laser timing, and more.

Signal Hound offers the VSG60A with the performance and agility of a serious vector signal generator at a fraction of the cost. With a low phase noise local oscillator with 200 µs switch time, the generator enables frequency hopping spread spectrum testing.

Available in Q4 2019.

The R&S BTC broadcast test center from Rohde & Schwarz provides a complete testing environment for nearly all audio, video and multimedia applications – in a single device. The RF reference signal generator generates RF signals for all global TV and broadcasting standards and simulates transmissions. The generator can also internally analyze the audio/video functions of DUTs in realtime. The modular design provides a high degree of scalability, allowing the R&S BTC to be configured for any customer requirement.

This ultra-compact RF signal generator is ideal for EMC/EMI applications and for use as a general purpose RF source. It comes in a compact and rugged enclosure and covers the 9 kHz to 3.0 GHz frequency range.

This series of ultra-low noise signal sources features exceptionally low phase noise, supplementary output at oscillator frequency, and a wide range of output frequencies and multiplication ratios. They provide a range of high-performance building blocks between 200 MHz and 3 GHz.

The R&S®SMW200A is the vector signal generator for the most demanding applications. As a result of its flexibility, performance and intuitive operation, it is a perfect tool for generating complex, digitally modulated signals of high quality.
