API Technologies Corp., a leading provider of high performance RF/microwave, power, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, announced the launch of configurable frequency synthesizers (Models LCFS-X), the newest addition to the company’s line of standard RF/microwave products.

Offering superior phase noise performance as low as -92 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset, the synthesizers are ideally suited for a variety of applications including SIGINT /electronic warfare (EW), SATCOM, Doppler radar, and telecommunication systems. The compact surface mount packaging and affordable price point make these synthesizers an ideal solution for unmanned systems applications.

Available with full octave coverage from 275 MHz to 6 GHz and fractional bandwidths to 10 GHz, the new line of customizable frequency synthesizers offers a standard internal reference. Three additional outputs are available at either the fundamental or divided oscillator frequency with up to +13 dBm output power. No user programming is required for customized features.

“With some of the best phase noise performance in the industry, our new line of customizable surface-mount frequency synthesizers combines superior performance and affordability,” said Ken Veith, director of Technology RF/Microwave and Microelectronics (RF2M US), API Technologies.

In September, the company will launch a set of online and mobile tools that allow engineers to easily configure RF / microwave product to suit their project needs in real time. Ideal for prototype development, the new tools reduce product development process time and release to market while adding functionality that offers performance enhancements.

“API Technologies has an established heritage as a leader in the development of custom and standard microwave solutions that address a wide variety of complex applications. The addition of standard and customizable products to our growing portfolio lets engineers leverage the superior features of API Technologies’ products in their designs at affordable prices, with accelerated delivery worldwide,” said Richard Graham, Vice President and General Manager RF2M US, API Technologies.
