ANDOVER, Mass.- Mercury Systems, Inc. of Andover, Mass., announced the SpectrumSeries DS-3000 synthesizer, the company’s latest direct digital synthesis (DDS)-based synthesizer. Designed to support customers’ advanced frequency conversion technology requirements and operate in the harshest environments, the DS-3000 synthesizer offers industry-leading phase noise of -121 dBc/Hz at 10 GHz with 10 kHz offset, and frequency coverage up to 20 GHz with 1 Hz resolution.
To support operation in harsh environments, Mercury’s synthesizer technology offers high performance over a wide temperature range of -30°C to +70°C, while minimizing the harmful effects of microphonics. Additionally, the ability to control the hardware through either a PC-based graphical user interface (GUI) or an SPI-bus makes these products well-suited for both benchtop operation and integration into ruggedized EW systems.
To maximize system flexibility, the DS-3000 is available in a standard temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO)-based architecture as well as an ultra-low phase noise, oven-controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO)-based architecture. For laboratory applications, this technology is also available as the SIG-20 benchtop signal generator.
