AM1-S100 Frequency Synthesizer

Product Description

The AM1-S100 is a small form-factor frequency synthesizer that is indispensable for laboratory work where multiple coherent precision frequency references are needed. A block diagram of the frequency synthesis portion is shown in Figure 1. The filter bank shown in Figure 2 is used to suppress unwanted harmonics from the 10 – 1344 MHz output while also providing precision output amplitude control.

Main features include:

  • Disciplined (frequency-locked to GPS precision 1 PPS signal) 10 MHz OCXO for exceptional long term frequency stability
    • 3 coherent 10 MHz CMOS outputs
    • 1 coherent 10 MHz sine wave output
  • Phase-locked 100 MHz VCXO for exceptionally clean 100 MHz output
    • 3 coherent 100 MHz LVDS outputs with excellent close-in as well as far-out phase noise performance
    • 1 coherent 100 MHz sine wave output with similar spectral purity
    • 3 coherent 10 MHz CMOS outputs divided down from the 100 MHz VCXO output for excellent close-in as well as far-out phase noise performance
  • Main frequency synthesizer covering 10 MHz through 1344 MHz contiguously
  • Tunable output filter bank with amplitude control
    • All harmonics suppressed to < –50 dBc
    • Precision amplitude leveling versus frequency
    • 30 dB output power control range in 0.5 dB steps
