Microwave Transceiver also boasts the industry's best-in-class phase noise performance
in a 6U form factor
Mountain View, CA - October 24, 2019 – At next week's annual Association of Old
Crows (AOC) Symposium, Teledyne Defense Electronics (TDE) will be featuring
its latest advancement in VPX modular technology, a 6U VPX Transceiver with the
fastest tuning and lowest phase noise performance available on the market today.
- High dynamic range:
- RF coverage: 6 to 18 GHz, 1GHz IBW
- Noise Figure: 17 dB typical
- Phase Noise: 1 MHz @ -113 dBc/Hz
- Linear dynamic range: 90 dB (with 1 MHz BW)
- External system reference:
- Tuning speed: 5.0 µs max (to within 10 kHz) single-tone,
internally generated spurious: -80 dBm (@ -10 dBm input and max gain)
- Reference Frequency Input: (10-100 MHz)
For more information, visit Teledyne booth 711
next week at the 2019 AOC event in Washington, DC. A demonstration unit of the VPX
Transceiver will be available in the Teledyne booth for visitors to see.
Teledyne developed the Transceiver on a modular platform to address the industry's
interest in compressing development cycles and planning for technology insertion
in program life extensions. This broadband 6-18 GHz VPX card is ideal for meeting
the increasingly demanding requirements of today's microwave Transceiver applications
in an open systems-based platform. In addition to its new standard-setting phase
noise and tuning performance levels, the 6U Transceiver offers a high dynamic range
and built-in LO generation with external system reference.
At a weight of <2.75 kg, the
TSA-219040 Transceiver is a compact, ruggedized,
and air-cooled system with 75W maximum power consumption.
"This is an exciting first step in delivering Teledyne Microwave's 'best-of-breed'
family of modular solutions. The architecture allows for tailoring to meet the customer's
needs in terms of tuning speed, phase noise, IBW, and frequency range. We anticipate
this Transceiver will attract strong interest from customers and we encourage everyone
to view the demo unit and meet our team at AOC next week," said Mike Penta, Vice
President of Strategy and Business Development for TDE.
