The THOR Series from EM Research are Programmable Frequency Synthesizers that operate from 1 to 18 GHz. The synthesizers provide an output power of up to 14 dBm and require an external reference from 5 to 200 MHz. The synthesized signal has a low phase noise with harmonics less than -25 dBc and spurious less than -60 dBc. The synthezisers require a supply voltage of 5, 8 or 15 VDC and draw a current of under 300 mA. They are available in a module that measures 2.5 x 1.1 x 0.4 inches with SMA connectors.

ZFR-20000-XA: Broadband, High Performance Synthesizer

Designed as a rugged, low-profile synthesizer for airborne radar systems operating from 4 to 20 GHz

RENO, NEVADA, JANUARY 3rd, 2017

The ZFR-20000-XA is a multi-octave frequency synthesizer operating from 4 to 20 GHz with fast switching capability (<100 µSec) and <-60 dBc spurs across the entire range. The ZFR offers a low profile design for use as a local oscillator in airborne radar applications capable of withstanding high vibration and shock.

The ZFR-20000-XA locks to an external 10 MHz reference and exhibits extremely low phase noise at any frequency; <-101 dBc/Hz @ 4 GHz and <-89 dBc/Hz @ 20 GHz, both at 100 KHz offset. The device also features +10 dBm output power, 10 MHz step size, and powered through a +5V supply with <1500 mA current draw. This small, rugged package (4.5” x 2.5” x 0.6”) features SMA RF connectors and a 21-pin Micro-D header for I/O and operates over the temperature range of -40° C to +85° C with extended temperatures available.

EM RESEARCH RELEASES NEW HFS-12000-XA: 7 TO 12 GHZ SURFACE-MOUNT FREQUENCY SYNTHESIZER

RENO, NEVADA, JUNE 16TH, 2016

The HFS-12000-XA is a 7000 to 12000 MHz surface-mount frequency synthesizer designed as a high performance down-converter LO for RADAR Digital Signal Processors. The design also features low phase noise

The HFS-12000-XA also locks to a 100 MHz reference and contains a channel step size of 1 MHz or 10 MHz (depending on customer preference), +10 dBm power output,

The HFS-12000-XA introduces a new broadband architecture to the company’s HFS Series product line and offers capabilities previously not available in the market. The growing demands of the signals intelligence market require wider bandwidths and better performance in small, compact packages, particularly for airborne RADAR applications. The HFS-12000-XA design marks another example of EM Research’s ability to deliver leading edge technologies for customer’s most demanding requirements.
