Oscilliators / Synthesizers

Frequency Sources

In modern RF & Microwave communication systems, signal integrity is of prime importance. To meet system requirements, amplifiers, mixers and modulators must have low noise figure and low distortion products. A frequency synthesizer is a device capable of generating sets of signals of given output frequencies with very high accuracy and precision from a single reference frequency. The signal generated at the output is commonly known as the local oscillator (LO) signal. Phase-Locked (PLL) synthesizers are the most commonly used type of synthesizers.
