48 GHz, ±2 GHz Tuning Bandwidth, +20 dBm Output Power, WR-22 Waveguide, Q Band Mechanically Tuned Gunn Oscillator
- 1 to 2 Weeks ARO
Model SOM-48304320-22-MI is a Q-Band, mechanically tuned Gunn oscillator that utilizes a high performance GaAs Gunn diode and proprietary cavity design to deliver +20 dBm typical power. The oscillator features a frequency tuning range of 46 to 50 GHz and delivers low AM/FM noise and harmonic emissions. Compared to its counterparts, such as multiplier based sources, the Gunn oscillator is a lower cost and cleaner source. In addition, this model features an integrated isolator to achieve a more stable performance. The Gunn oscillator's frequency can also be tuned by varying the bias voltage, which is useful for phase-locking and electrical-tuning applications. The Gunn oscillator is equipped with a micrometer for quick frequency tuning and test bench applications. Models with a self-locking set screw for system integration are available under a different model number. The performance of the oscillator can be further enhanced by adding a Gunn oscillator modulator/regulator and temperature heater.
