The APUASYN20 is a single-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.
The output of the APUASYN20 can be programmed in frequency, phase and power.
The frequency synthesizer works with a high-stability OCXO reference and uses a phase-coherent architecture. The unit 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.
