Agile Ultra-Low Phase Noise Signal Generators, Anapico APLCXX-X Series

The APLCXX-X is an agile ultra-low phase noise signal generator from 10 MHz to 20 (APLC20-X), 40 GHz (APLC40-X), or 54 GHz (APLC50-X). It is available in 1, 2, 3 or 4 channel configurations in a 2HU 19’’ enclosure. For high phase coherence, RF channels are locked to a single reference source. Excellent harmonic and spurious performance in combination with fast switching makes the instruments suitable where high performance is required in labs or production facilities.

The single-channel version APLCXX is available in a portable / bench-top enclosure with color touch display and front panel control or as a rack-mountable module.

The main features of these RF and microwave signal generators (RF and MW signal sources) are:

  • OCXO <20 ppb/yr aging (with option LN+)
  • Outstanding phase noise, harmonic and spurious performance
  • Repeatable and accurately settable output power
  • Fast switching of 5 µs (option FS)
  • Sweep, trigger functions, and user-programmable external reference frequency between 1 to 250 MHz
  • Low power consumption
  • Mechanical housing form: 19″ 2HU
  • Local front panel operation, PC controlled local or remote operation through the communication ports USB, Ethernet, and optionally GPIB, and by using GUI Software or ATE commands (SCPI 1999)
