Innovative low-cost RF signal generator is programmable, and software-tunable
July 29, 2015
Fairport, NY. Saelig Company Inc. announces the
SynthNV - a programmable 34.4 MHz to
4.4 GHz software-tunable RF signal and sweep generator with a built-in RF power detector. It is controlled
and powered from any device running Windows, Linux or Android OS via a USB port. The included onboard RF power detector
can be used as a generic RF power meter or combined with the SynthNV's sweep function to create a basic RF network
analyzer. When the RF signal generator frequency is set, RF power can be measured in less than 400 uS. The
SynthNV design also includes nonvolatile memory so it can be programmed to wake up with any frequency, power, sweep,
and modulation setting.
Controlled by easy-to-use open-source LabVIEW GUI software, the SynthNV can be powered from a USB port or from
an external 6 - 9 V source. The SynthNV can run all its features with or without a connected PC, and its impressive
specifications include: 2.5 ppm generator frequency accuracy, 150 us generator lock time, 1 kHz or
smaller generator step size, phase noise of 93 dBc/Hz@ 1kHz offset and 117 dBc/Hz @ 100kHz offset with
a 1 GHz carrier (typical). Modulation capabilities include AM with sinusoid, ramp, sawtooth or programmable
arbitrary waveforms, as well as Pulse Modulation with 1us minimum pulse width and resolution. Output power is +19 dBm
which can be adjusted in 0.5 dB amplitude steps. The broadband RF power detector measurement time is only 200 us,
and it measures from -60 dBm to +10 dBm with 0.1 dB resolution.
This highly mobile, very affordable, low power RF module is an ideal solution for a wide variety of RF signal
generation needs. Applications include: Wireless communications systems, RF and microwave radios, Software Defined
Radio (SDR), radar, Automated Test Equipment (ATE), EMC -radiated immunity pre-compliance testing, Scalar Network
Analysis (SNA), Electronic Warfare (EW)and Law Enforcement, local oscillator replacement, quantum device research,
plasma physics, education, etc.
Designed and manufactured in USA by Windfreak Technologies, a designer of low cost, innovative RF products that
are in use worldwide in a variety of technical applications, the SynthNV is available now from Saelig Company, Inc.
