This fast-switching frequency synthesizer keeps the spurious and phase-noise levels low across a total frequency tuning range as wide as 50 MHz to 21 GHz. Microwave signal sources must deliver on many different levels. Depending on the application, they may need to switch frequencies quickly, often in fine frequency steps, and always with low phase noise. Achieving this combination of high performance ...

What is YIG? Yttrium Iron Garnet (YIG) is a crystal that has very high Q characteristics. This high Q provides very low phase noise in oscillators and multi-octave frequency tuning for both oscillators and filters. YIG crystals are “grown”, similar to silicon crystals. The pulled crystal is “sliced and diced”, resulting in small YIG cubes. (Unfortunately, the cube shape ...

Bandpass Filters In a bandpass filter, the coupling loops are aligned at a 90° angle to prevent direct RF coupling. One end of each loop is grounded. This prevents the filtered signal from being reflected. The RF input signal of the coupling loop modulates the magnetic field around the YIG sphere, this modulation is coupled to the magnetic field resonating around the YIG sphere, which then ...
