Offering extremely wide frequency tuning range with excellent frequency linearity our electromagnetic YIG technology provides frequency coverage from 500 MHz to 40 GHz. Package sizes from 1” x 1” x 0.5” to 2.0” cylinders are available. PCB mount versions (MLTM, MLMB, MLMY and MLMH models) up to 12 GHz and traditional connectorized models incorporating SMA female, SMA male, GPO and K-connectors are available across the standard product families. Standard MLOM & MLXM series 1” cubes, MLOB & MLXB series 1.25” cubes, and the MLOS, MLXS & MLXS-T series 1.75” and 2” cylinders provide very wide band tuning ranges up to 40 GHz.
Most model series are available with silicon bipolar, SiGE and FET based transistor circuits yielding the best phase noise performance on the market today. Additional features include wide operating temperature range, fast switching and low phase noise performance. Coupled with wide tuning range and excellent linearity, our standard electromagnetic oscillator products are perfect for next-generation test equipment designs as well as legacy and special military applications requiring rugged, environmentally sound oscillators.
Avantek oscillator replacement models are designated by the original Avantek model number beginning with "AV" which appears under correlating MicroLambda model numbers.
