Mechanically-Tuned Gunn Oscillators
Mechanically tuned Gunn oscillators utilize high performance GaAs Gunn diodes and various cavity designs to deliver moderate output power with low AM/FM noise and harmonic emissions. Compared to their counterparts, such as multiplier based sources, Gunn oscillators offer a broader mechanical tuning capability and lower cost solution. The standard offering covers the frequency range of 8.2 to 140 GHz. While standard models are equipped with a micrometer for bench test purpose, models with a self-locking set screw are also available for system integration. The performance of the oscillator can be further enhanced by adding an optional isolator, Gunn oscillator modulator/regulator, and temperature heater.
