Airborne Radar Synthesizer – THOR Series
Recently, a customer needed a robust, lightweight synthesizer with more complex features than were currently available in any system on the market. The customer needed the features in the smallest, lightest package physically possible. We designed a custom THOR Series synthesizer that included, internal reference, fast switching (<300 μSecond), broadband frequency range (6 to 8 GHz), small steps (500 KHz), high power output (+15 dBm) and a wide operating temperature range (-40℃ to +85℃). The complete design was built to withstand high vibration and shock and exhibited excellent spurious and phase noise performance. Plus, it all fit within our small THOR package.
