The PicoSource AS108 Agile Synthesizer is a frequency synthesizer that operates from 300 kHz to 8 GHz. It is designed to meet the needs of both benchtop and integrated module applications. Its broad frequency range, fast settling and programmable phase, frequency and amplitude make it ideal for a wide range of applications, with the added advantages of low cost, small footprint and 12 to 15 V power requirement. 

The AS108 has professional-grade performance that is effective in both static and parameter-agile applications, making it a bench or field instrument for developers, scientists, educators, students, and service and installation technicians. Its speed, external clock referencing, trigger capabilities and user programmable power-up mode all suit it to system integrations such as automated test, unmanned installations and multi-signal stimulus.

The AS108 is a USB-controlled vector (IQ) modulating signal synthesizer. It is supplied with an easy to use user interface for controlling its amplitude, frequency and phase agility; including modulations, sweeps, hopping and list modes from Microsoft Windows. Multiple synthesizers can be controlled from multiple instances of the software running on a single controlling PC or device. Remote control is also possible using the API included.
