THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., 28 Sept. 2016. TRAK Microwave – part of Smiths Microwave Subsystems with offices in Tampa, Florida, and Dundee, Scotland – is introducing the SYN152 X-band direct synthesizer/upconverter, which features four x2, x3, x4, and x17 multiplied output ports with various powers in the L-, S-, or X-bands as well as an X-band BIT detector.

Ideally suited for airborne environments, the new SSMP- and SMP-connected lightweight device operates from -40 degrees Celsius to +85 degrees C. With UHF input power at -6 dBm, this synthesizer can output 0 decibel-milliwatts (dBm) in the S-band, 2 dBm in the X3 L-band, 4 dBm in the X2 L-band, and 10 dBm in the X-band. The SYN152 exhibits low residual phase noises, a fast LVTTL switching of 50 nanoseconds (ns) between the multiplied X-band output and the IF supplied output, and excellent harmonics of -65 dBC in a low-profile, hermetically sealed, and laser-welded package.

TRAK Microwave Corp. designs and manufactures RF and microwave passive components and sub-assemblies for the defense, space, and established reliability industrial communities. The products include a range of standard products and application specific solutions in coaxial, microstrip or waveguide technology which provide our customers and prospective customers with a broad choice of technologically differentiated solutions with an unrivalled existing portfolio of ferrite isolators, circulators, transitions, terminations, loads, and couplers optimized to meet exacting requirements and environments.
