APUASYN20-X Ultra-agile Frequency Synthesizer - up to 20 GHz

Ultra-Agile Signal Source from 8 kHz to 20 GHz

The APUASYN20-X is a multi-channel version of a very compact and agile signal source up to 20 GHz. It combines fast switching speed with good phase noise and signal quality.
It is available in 1, 2, 3 or 4 channel configurations in a standard 1HU 19’’ rack-mountable enclosure. For high phase coherence, RF channels are locked to a common frequency reference.
The single-channel version APUASYN20 is available as flange- and rack-mountable module or in a compact desktop enclosure with color touch display and front panel control.

The APUASYN20-X is a multi-channel version of a compact and agile signal source from 8 kHz up to 20 GHz. It combines fast switching speed with good phase noise and signal quality. The multi-channel version APUASYN20-X is available in 1, 2, 3 or 4 channel configurations in a standard 1HU 19’’ rack-mountable enclosure.

Each output can be programmed independently in frequency, phase and power.

The unit works with a high-stability OCXO reference and uses a phase-coherent architecture to keep stable phase relationship between the outputs.

The APUASYN20-X is available with a very fast switching and sweeping option. Programming and switching transient can finished in less than 5 micro-seconds over the entire settable range of the device.

It can be programmed by standard SCPI syntax using its USB or Gb Ethernet interface. Additionally, a fast control port (FCP) is available to synchronize and trigger in “real-time” frequency, power, and phase.
