Analog Devices offers the ADF5610 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 57 MHz to 14,600 MHz to be generated with an output frequency ranging from 7,300 MHz to 14,600 MHz.

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.

Higher power in their signal generators was Berkeley Nucelonics’ number one request from their customers, and they delivered on it. The model 845-HP microwave signal generator is very similar to the model 845, but its wide and accurately levelled output power range (up to +23 DBM) and high spurious suppression set it apart.

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.

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.

As its model number implies, the 745T-20C is a digital delay generator with 20 channels in one unit. It features a 100 ps time resolution (standard, with an optional 250 fs time resolution), 5 ps jitter (internal trigger), a 25 ps jitter (external trigger), 1 ns output rise times, and more.

The VFCG-HD1 is a fully integrated video clock generator which provides synchronous High Definition (HD) and Standard Definition (SD) output clocks for the various scanning formats. The device synchronizes to the standard input reference clock required by SMPTE274, SMPTE296, NTSC, or PAL systems.

The R&S SGS100A is an RF source designed to meet the requirements of automated test systems. It is available as a CW source or as a vector signal generator with an integrated I/Q modulator. With its frequency range of up to 6 GHz, the vector signal generation version covers the essential digital signals. The CW version, with a range of up to 12.75 GHz, can be used as a flexible local oscillator as well as for interference testing against mobile radio standards.
