Sunnyvale, CA--Endwave Defense Systems, a manufacturer of RF subsystems and components for military and homeland security applications, has announced the release of a new X-band synthesizer that meets the rigid requirements of Satcom environments. This high performance synthesizer operates over the X-band Satcom range of 6.410-7.545 GHz and can be customized to meet step size requirements from 1 KHz down to 1 Hz. It features outstanding spectral purity and low phase noise of -77 dBc at 100 Hz offsets and -125 dBc at 1 MHz offsets. The X band synthesizer is ideal for harsh-environment defense applications where a combination of low noise, wide bandwidth, and very small step size are essential. The base model is based on Endwave's proprietary YIG oscillators. Applications include: field portable X-band Satcom terminals, control links for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and tri-band converters. Other S-, C-, Ku-, Ka-, and Tri-Band synthesizers are also available - in both YIG and VCO-based designs.
