Series SQ Narrow Frequency Band Synthesizer


Kratos General Microwave introduces the Series SQ Narrow Band Synthesizer as a high performance, low cost alternative to a fixed frequency source.
 

 

APPLICATIONS

The Series SQ synthesizer has been designed to be used as the L.O. in various up and down frequency converters.  It can be used as a replacement of a DRO, in applications that require high frequency stability over temperature and in operation under vibrations.
