An innovative approach in the design of fast-switching microwave synthesizers

This paper presents a compact, broadband frequency synthesizer module, which covers 0.1 to 10 GHz frequency range with a 0.001 Hz step size. The synthesizer combines fast switching speed, low phase noise, and low spurious characteristics. The measured phase noise at an output frequency of 10 GHz and 10 kHz offset is −122 dBc/Hz. For an output frequency of 0… CONTINUE READING
