Pasternack Launches New Series of SMT Noise Sources from 0.2 MHz to 3 GHz

Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, announced their new series of miniature SMT packaged noise sources that are ideal for built-in test equipment, dithering for increased dynamic range of A/D converters and as a source for bit error rate testing. These noise sources can be used in communication systems, microwave radios, military and commercial radars, test and measurement equipment, base station infrastructure and telecom data links.

These new noise sources include nine models with industry standard SMT gullwing pin and dual in-line pin (DIP) surface mount packaging options. They cover frequency ranges from 0.2 MHz to 3 GHz and provide a source of additive white gaussian noise (AWGN) with a crest factor of 5:1. The SMT gullwing pin models in this line feature high output ENR levels ranging from 31 dB to 51 dB. The DIP models boast a noise output power level of -5dBm. These rugged 50 Ohm designs require DC voltage levels of +12 Vdc or +15 Vdc and can operate over a wide temperature range of -55°C to +125°C.

Pasternack now offers a comprehensive selection of miniature SMT packaged noise sources to address the needs of designers for circuit board level proof-of-concept or prototype applications. These products normally require 8-10 weeks lead times, but they are able to provide them quickly with same-day shipping and no minimum order quantity.
