The HSM18001B from Holzworth Instrumentation is a RF synthesizer module that operates from 10 MHz to 20 GHz. This microwave CW source is architected on a non-PLL based platform. The digital-analog hybrid design provides excellent phase noise performance and spurious response, which compliment the phase coherent nature of these digital-analog hybrid signal sources.
The module can be controlled directly via the SPI bus, the Holzworth GUI, a preloaded lookup table, LabVIEW, MATLAB, C++, C#, etc. It has a switching speed of less than 300 us and an onboard precision 100 MHz OCXO. The HSM18001B is ideal for electronics design, manufacturing test and OEM systems integration applications.
