Ultra-Agile Frequency Synthesizer from 100 kHz to 22 GHz

The APMSYN22 is a compact-size frequency synthesizer for the generation of accurate and stable frequency signal in both CW and pulse form, covering a frequency range of 100 kHz to 22 GHz, with a fast-switching time of 5 us, the output power of -40 to 25 dBm depending on the frequency. The phase noise at 1 GHz and 20 kHz offset is -132 dBc/Hz, and the subharmonics and spurious lower than -55 dBc. The frequency setting resolution is 10 mHz and for the power 0.5 dB.

The synthesizer is excellently shielded and in a very compact flange-mountable form of 134 x 95 x 25 mm, weighs lighter than 0.5 kg, and consumes barely 17 W and therefore passively cooled. It features ETHERNET communication port for local and remote connection to a PC for control over GUI software or SCPI commands.

The module features external reference support of 100 MHz and 1 GHz. Multiple units can be connected, with one unit acting as the master and the others as slaves, to implement multi-channel PHASE-COHERENT sources. The Master reference frequency of 1 GHz is generated once in the master unit and looped through all the slave units. The phase coherence reached is about +/- 0.5 degree over 10 hours when all the channels are set to 5 GHz.

The product is suitable for many applications: as system clock source, in the multi-channel phase-coherent configurations for radar, beamforming, quantum computing, etc. The feature combination of phase coherence and fast switching allows also for applications in Electronic Warfare field.
