Design Method Predicts RF Oscillator Noise (.PDF Download)

Noise plagues most RF/microwave systems at some level. The majority of system-level designers aim to achieve the highest signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) possible to ensure optimum reception of signals in, say, receivers. Minimizing noise usually starts with the signal source, whether it’s an oscillator or an oscillator with a phase-locked loop (PLL) in a frequency synthesizer...

Synthesizers Shave Phase Noise to 24 GHz (.PDF Download)  

Frequency stability—an essential parameter for most RF/microwave applications—is usually synonymous with a signal source capable of low noise levels. The PHS-8400 family of frequency synthesizers from Pronghorn Solutions exemplifies a line of stable signal sources, but with a unique twist: The synthesizers are available in three different form factors—benchtop, modular, and handheld configurations—that will literally fit any application......More

Smart MPM Powers 100 W to 18 GHz (.PDF Download)  

Vacuum tubes can yield impressive amounts of microwave power in small packages, but they must be properly cooled for long-lifetime operation. On that front, the model dB-4150 microwave power module (MPM) developed by dB Control combines a first-stage solid-state amplifier and second-stage traveling-wave-tube (TWT) power booster with effective conductive cooling.
