- Buyers Guide
Phase Matrix's newest addition to the QuickSyn® line of microwave frequency synthesizers is a 10 GHz synthesizer housed in a very compact package, only 4 x 4 x 0.8 inches. The new synthesizer, model FSL-0010, employs the revolutionary phase-refining QuickSyn technology, which allows this line of signal sources to perform with remarkably low phase noise, switch between frequencies very quickly, and consume power efficiently.
The new Quicksyn Lite synthesizer is less than half the size of the full featured 10 GHz and 20 GHz QuickSyn synthesizers, yet it performs with wide coverage (0.65 to 10 GHz), fine resolution (0.001 Hz resolution), fast frequency switching (100 μs), and exhibits instrument-grade spectral purity. Furthermore, the FSL-0010 includes SPI and USB control interfaces, and like all QuickSyn synthesizers, this new model is immediately deployable by connecting it to a PC and power source. A soft front panel allows the user to access frequency sweep and list mode.
Instrument designers restricted by reduced footprint goals, power consumption constraints, and the need for low phase noise will appreciate the FSL-0010 as the single solution to a multitude of design challenges. Moreover, the QuickSyn Lite is amazingly affordable!
