I2R Nanowave Inc. Announces New Family of Synthesized Sources
New Direct Digital Synthesis of High Performance S-, C-, and X-band Sources for Radar Applications

Philadelphia, PA: Today at the IEEE RADAR 2016 Conference, I2R Nanowave Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced microwave, millimeter-wave and electro-optic components and sub-systems, is announcing new line of Direct Digital Synthesizers (DDS). Quickly configurable to any frequency range, these units can be ordered in advance and frequencies finalized at a later date. These low phase noise DDS provide fast frequency switching and a high resolution of 1Hz. Built with Nanowave’s HMIC technology and tested to MIL-PRF-38534, these units exhibit high reliability, low vibration sensitivity, and IP67 environmental performance.

The INWOG-2G3-3G6-18 is an S-band source that can be used to cover any 200MHz band between 2.3GHz and 3.66GHz. It exhibits better than -120dBc/Hz phase noise at 1kHz offset. The INWOG-5G25-5G93-17 is a C-band source covering any 200MHz band between 5.25GHz to 5.925GHz. Phase noise at 1kHz offset is better than -115dBc/Hz. Lastly, the INWOG-8G50-10G55-17 covers 200MHz bands in the X-band between 8.5GHz and 10.55GHz. Phase noise at X-band is better than -110dBc/Hz.

These sources are built with a proprietary platform design that allows frequency band selection to occur with the change of a single drop-in filter. Existing units can easily be re-banded to new frequency ranges if needed. Overall performance of 200nS switching speeds and 60dBc spurious signal levels ensure the units will perform perfectly in the most demanding systems.

Located in Macungie, Pennsylvania, I2R Nanowave Inc. is a world-class designer and manufacturer of advanced microwave, millimeter-wave and electro-optic components and sub-systems for Radar, Communications, and Space Applications.
