2200 Series
OEM Modular Synthesizer
The 2200 family of OEM Modular frequency synthesizers operates in the frequency range of
10 MHz to 18.4 GHz and offers sub-microsecond frequency switching speed and sub-microsecond
level correction, coupled with superb spectral Purity.
The 2200 family of OEM modular frequency
synthesizers operates in the frequency range of
10 MHz to 18.4 GHz and offers sub-microsecond
frequency switching speed and sub-microsecond
level correction, coupled with superb spectral purity.
With an installed base of more than a thousand units
supporting hundreds of sub-microsecond switching
and high spectral purity applications, the 2200 family
is a proven performer for a diverse range of stringent
applications. Extensive work has been undertaken to
provide superior reliability of the 2200 as a result of
reducing component count and increasing automated production techniques.
The 2200 is based on an iterative, modular direct
analog architecture with a central reference generator that synthesizes 50, 100, 150, 200 and 800
MHz signals from a 100 MHz reference derived by
multiplying a 5 or 10 MHz reference oscillator appropriately and improving far-out noise by judicious
filtering. All frequencies are derived in an iterative
frequency generation architecture. Frequencies are
generated as a decade of frequency steps over an
octave from 500 MHz inputs to the next stage. Final
outputs are produced by a scaling module which
provides for doubling, dividing or heterodyning to
achieve a range of 10 MHz to 2.3 GHz. Units which
have extended frequency ranges use an additional
scaling module which doubles to 4.6 GHz, and then
to 18.4 GHz. The architecture also provides the
additional benefit of simplifying the user interface
programming in Binary Coded Decimal (BCD).
Naturally, a variety of interfaces are optionally
provided, including IEEE-488 and a user-friendly
keyboard.
This unique, interactive, modular architecture also
allows for easy configurations of OEM or specialized
products.
The Best of Both Worlds
A keyboard-controlled version is available where
manual control makes sense. The 2200 provides
all the performance of the sub-microsecond
system synthesizer and easy to use, incredibly
clean, bench synthesizers. The 2200 is like two
synthesizers in one; a microsecond switching
computer controlled system synthesizer and an
IEEE-488 programmable keyboard entry bench
synthesizer with extensive sweep and synchronization capability.
You can conveniently use the 2200 for system
development with the convenience of keyboard
entry of frequency increments and sweeps, as well
as IEEE-488 programming. With the flip of a switch,
the 2200 becomes a BCD programmable microsecond frequency switching synthesizer. Even if you
do not need fast switching, the 2200 is one of the
lowest phase noise 18 GHz synthesizers available.
The 2200 provides programmable and keyboard
controlled modulation of AM and FM and 1 μsec
frequency switching up to 4 GHz.
OEM Configuration Guide
Aeroflex’s modular architecture and iterative
frequency plan makes it ideally suited for custom
OEM applications. Just two standard modules
make up a 10 MHz - 2.3 GHz, 100 MHz resolution OEM synthesizer with the same specifications
as the standard family, needing only DC power
and Frequency Reference. To obtain finer resolution and/or wider frequency coverage, just add
the appropriate standard modules. Factory assistance is available to help you configure an OEM
synthesizer which best meets your electrical or
environmental specifications.

SWITCHING SPEED
The 2200 switches between any two frequencies 10 MHz-18 GHz
in less than 1 µsec with 0.1 Hz resolution. The switching time is
measured from the time the 2200 receives a strobe command
to switch until the phase detector output shows arrival at new frequency. The 2200 is unique: the larger the resolution, the faster the
switching speed with 1 GHz resolution or more typically switching
in less than 250 nsec.
PHASE NOISE
The 2200 provides sub-microsecond switching and superior phase
noise performance simultaneously.
