TRAK adds X-Band synthesizer and up-converter with low phase noise and harmonics

September 28, 2016

Smiths Microwave Subsystems has announced that TRAK Microwave has added an X-Band direct synthesizer/up-converter to its wide range of product offerings.

The SYN152 features four multiplied output ports (x2, x3, x4 and x17) with various powers in L-, S- or X-Bands, as well as an X-Band BIT detector. With UHF input power at −6 dBm, this synthesizer can output 0 dBm at S-Band, 2 dBm at the x3 L-Band, 4 dBm at the x2 L-Band and 10 dBm at X-Band. The SYN152 exhibits low residual phase noise, fast LVTTL switching of 50 ns between the multiplied X-Band output and the IF supplied output and excellent harmonics of −65 dBc in a low profile, hermetically sealed and laser welded package.

Ideally suited for airborne environments, this SSMP- and SMP-connected lightweight device operates from −40°C to +85°C.
