NANOWAVE announces high reliability, low phase noise, DDS based frequency synthesizers for RADAR applications

Low Phase-Noise Frequency Synthesizer and Oscillator
NANOWAVE Technologies offers high reliability, low phase noise, DDS based sources for airborne
and ground based RADAR platforms. The units leverage NANOWAVE's in-house high reliability
HMIC process and proprietary low phase noise synthesizer and oscillator capabilities. The source
module is customizable to full-band operation at L-, S-, C-, and X-bands.

The X-band unit provides 8–12 GHz continuous tuning bandwidth at a frequency step resolution less
than 1Hz. Phase noise of -110dBc/Hz at100KHz offset is achieved at 10GHz. Spurious signal levels
less than -55dBc at a 5MHz frequency step are guaranteed through 100% testing. All performance
parameters are achieved over an operational temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C. All modules are
hermetically sealed for highest reliability.

The unit can be integrated with NANOWAVE Technologies FPGA-based intelligent converter
technology to provide a light weight, frequency agile transceiver platform suitable for advanced
airborne RADAR systems or ground-based applications.

Special Features:

• Full custom design
• Drop-In modules or stand-alone units
• External or Internal References
• Airborne Radar and Telecommunication Systems
• Terrestrial Radar Systems
