Nanowave Technologies Announces New Compact X-band Synthesizer

High Coherence Source for X-band Sources for Radar Applications

20 September 2016, Toronto, Ontario: Nanowave Technologies, a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced microwave, millimeter-wave and electro-optic components and sub-systems, is announcing the release of a new X-band Synthesizer, the NWO0910-15, to complement existing line of synthesizers and direct digital synthesis products. Serving most X-band radar bands, this unit provides low phase noise, high coherence exciter frequencies to enhance radar performance. With sub-100 microsecond (┬ÁS) switching speeds, and small frequency steps, this unit is ideally suited for frequency agile radars that need to vary frequency from pulse to pulse. With an internal, temperature stabilized reference; the NWO0910-15 does not need to rely on an external reference for its outstanding performance.

The NWO0910-15 is an X-band source that can be used in any frequency from 9.0 to 10.0 GHz in frequency steps of 1 to 100MHz.  It exhibits better than -100dBc/Hz phase noise at 1kHz offset and coherence of -55 dBc typically. The internal reference is temperature stabilized to +1 ppm over the operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C, ageing of less than 1ppm/yr and low g-sensitivity of 0.5ppb/g making the unit suitable for high vibration environments.

These cost effective sources are built with a proprietary dual-loop platform design that provides high performance frequency synthesis in a compact profile. The unit is ideal for portable designs where size and weight are at a premium.
