Hittite Announces Powerful New Synthesized Signal Generator that Sweeps from 10 MHz to 70 GHz!
-- Wideband Coverage and Excellent Phase Noise to Serve a Multitude of Applications
Chelmsford, MA, 08/01/2011 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based
solutions for communication & military markets, has introduced a powerful new Synthesized Signal Generator which
is ideal for engineering development and production test environments in microwave and millimeterwave radio,
wireless HDMI, medical, SatCom and sensor equipment applications. The new
HMC-T2270 delivers the cleanest signal, the broadest frequency coverage, and the highest output power compared
with any signal generator in its class.
The HMC-T2270 is a 10
MHz to 70 GHz signal generator that delivers up to +29 dBm of CW output power in 0.1 dB steps over a 60 dB dynamic
range. Harmonic rejection is better than -40 dBc at 30 GHz output, while spurious products are better than -65 dBc
at all integer frequencies. Phase noise is -113 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset from 1 GHz, and -79 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz
offset from 67 GHz, with insignificant deviation over the temperature range of 0 to +35 °C. The
frequency resolution of 1 Hz and fast switching speed of only 500 µs, making it ideal for frequency hopping and
threat simulation applications.
Synthesized Signal Generator was developed to provide the R&D engineer and the production test engineer with the
highest level of performance and functionality, while maintaining reasonable cost. Furthermore, the broad
frequency coverage of the
HMC-T2270 will be
attractive to OEMs involved in the development of new and emerging automotive sensors, millimeterwave
communications and medical equipment, as well as those taking advantage of the globally available unlicensed
communications spectrum between 57 and 66 GHz.
Built on a foundation of Hittite's innovative and market leading MMIC products, the
HMC-T2270 is a versatile
signal generator which is compatible with many different control interfaces (USB, GPIB and Ethernet) ensuring
carefree integration in any test environment. An installation disk that accompanies each unit includes all of the
drivers required to remotely control the instrument, as well as a user friendly LabWindowsTM based GUI interface
compatible with Windows XP®, Windows Vista®, and Windows 7® operating systems. User control is facilitated via
pull down menus that allow programming of single or swept modes in frequency and/or power. Integration of multiple
HMC-T2270 instruments within a single test rack is simple and affordable.
The HMC-T2270 is compact
and lightweight, making it well suited for integration within various test environments while improving overall
productivity and equipment utilization. The
Signal Generator can be ordered via the company's e-commerce site or direct purchase order. Contact us today to
