73 GHz, ±1.5 GHz Tuning Bandwidth, +10 dBm Output Power, WR-12 Waveguide, InP Gunn Diode-Based, E Band Mechanically Tuned Gunn Oscillator
- 4 to 6 Weeks ARO
Model SOM-73303310-12-M1 is an E-Band, mechanically tuned Gunn oscillator that utilizes a high performance GaAs Gunn diode and proprietary cavity design to deliver +10 dBm typical power. The oscillator features a frequency tuning range of 71.5 to 74.5 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. 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 an optional isolator, Gunn oscillator modulator/regulator and temperature heater.
