Description:
The Aeroflex 2500 Series synthesizers stand at the pinnacle of a family of frequency synthesizers
that exemplify cutting edge performance. The 2500 Series synthesizers are more reliable, ultra-fast,
exceptionally clean, and low cost. They are an ideal source for agile radar, radar simulators, radar
upgrades, fast antenna pattern testing, RCS measurements, and ultra-fast ATE. The high-speed source is
based on direct-synthesis techniques with generous use of sharp-rolloff bandpass filters for low-spurious
performance. The instrument is housed in a 3U rack-mountable chassis with display, keyboard, IEEE-488
interface, and parallel BCD interface for ultra-fast switching control. The architecture developed around
direct analog frequency synthesis is inherently insensitive to vibration - there are no VCOs or sensitive
phase lock loops. The components and modules supporting the architecture have also been selected
for their rugged and temperature stable qualities. The architecture has been implemented using the
advanced technology in an easily customizable configuration.
