Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.
Post subject: signals in phase

I have a question:
I have two signal generators. I´d like to make two signals 1900MHz with
a phase between them. In the generators there is a option where you
can chenge the starting phase. If I put this two signals made in a power
combiner in your opinion they will be stable in phase. I mean the different
phase between them will be always the same. Of course they are syncronized
Thanks in advance, wallace0075

The two signals will maintante the same phase difference
+ the phase error of the splitter. But you can calibrate out the phase
error by adjusting the phase of one of the signals to compensate for
the phase error of the combiner.
Post subject: Phase shift
Unread postPosted: Sat Feb 12, 2005
Just because 2 signals are at the same
frequency doesn't mean that the phase shift between them can't vary.
Noise in one generator that isn't in the other will show up as a phase
shift between the two.
To put it another way: in a phase-locked-loop,
the phase error is the signal that provides the feecback which tunes
the VCO. So unless the generators use a 3rd order loop, there will be
a phase error in each generator, which will change with temperature,
So you absolutely *MUST* verify that your generators
will do what you want.

I thought what wallace was trying to achieve here was to
have to signals of same frequency but different phase. Depending on
what he has a generator, there are many that are capable of adjusting
the phase of the signal. Naturally, he will need to calibrate the signal
to cancel out errors in the system.

I have an idea abot this.
If I put a trigger with the same frequency
of the two signals that I want get, and I sincronyze all, Can I get
in the output the two signals stable in phase ??
