Signal Generator Extension Modules

OML’s Signal Generator Frequency Extension Module can extend the frequency range of your existing 20 GHz microwave synthesizer to millimeter wave frequencies. Modules are available to span the waveguide bands between 50 and 500 GHz. These source modules are RoHS compliant. In addition, an option is available for manual power sweeps using a micrometer as a tuning mechanism. The standard source module has a prerequisite for +12V that is easily satisfied with many commercially available power supplies. As an alternative, a specialized option is available (SxxMS-AG) that enables the Keysight PSG to satisfy the source module's power supply prerequisite.

YIG Technology

YIG technology is the most effective solution to a variety of RF and microwave frequency generation and filtering challenges — especially when the absolute lowest phase noise and multi-octave tuning is required. At Micro Lambda Wireless we've dedicated ourselves to the art of YIG-tuned designs and perfecting the science of manipulating YIG behavior. We offer you the latest suite of standard products, customization capabilities, and the best customer support.

Established in 1990, no company has done more in the last 25 years to launch new products and revolutionize the field of YIG design. Taking what was once a technology reserved for only the most far-reaching programs, Micro Lambda has developed commercially viable and standardly packaged components to give every RF and microwave engineer the chance to consider the difference a YIG-based device or system can make.

Bi-Phase Modulators

Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has just launched a new line of bi-phase modulators that includes a comprehensive selection of nine different models covering broad octave frequency bands ranging from 0.5 to 40 GHz. Bi-phase modulators take a TTL level digital bits stream that is encoded onto the RF carrier using 2 Phase Shift Keying (2PSK) modulation, where the 2 phases are separated by 180 degrees. This performance is desirable in communications systems, microwave radio, radar, high-data-rate test & measurement, serial data transmission, base station infrastructure and other industrial and military applications.
