Series SW Compact Wide Frequency Band Indirect Synthesizer

Kratos General Microwave introduces the Series SW Compact, Wide Band, Fast (50 usecs), Indirect Synthesizers offering exceptionally high performance at a low cost. 

 

APPLICATIONS

The Series SW synthesizer has been designed to be used in applications where small size, low cost and wideband operation are important requirements. It can be used as a Signal Generator in Portable Test Equipment,  as microwave source in Built In Test (BIT) subassembly or in a broad frequency range electronic system.

For military applications, this synthesizer requires option G09 to comply with Military Standards. The specific environmental MIL STD requirements as well as the EMI/RFI specifications should be provided by the customer.
