Global RF and microwave components and equipment manufacturer, AtlanTecRF, has launched its new Multiple Frequency Comb Generator. The unit, which is supplied in a three unit high bench top case, is designed for use in up to the minute particle physics and material science research. The input signal is amplified to provide power to a comb generator.
Frequencies are selected by a switched filter bank. Signal control for AM modulation is provided by way of a voltage variable attenuator and phase shift control through a line stretcher. The signal is then amplified to provide an output at one of six frequencies.
An additional phase shifter will be supplied for use externally when 2GHz output frequency is selected.
The unit can be customised to provide alternative output frequencies. There is an option to provide up to 12 additional output frequencies. An additional switched output for an unfiltered comb can be included.
Geoff Burling, AtlanTecRF CEO, speaking as the product announcement was made, said: “We specifically designed this product to target researchers involved in magnetic materials, photonics, optical and X-ray measurements – often at synchrotron facilities. With its launch operators can now generate multiple frequencies locked to a precise reference frequency.”
