Equipments Details


The AS108 is a full-function USB-controlled vector (IQ) modulating signal synthesizer. The downloadable PicoSynth 2 Software presents a user interface for controlling its amplitude, frequency and phase agility; including modulations, sweeps, hopping and list modes from Microsoft Windows. Multiple synthesizers can be controlled from multiple instances of the software running on a single controlling PC or device. Remote control is also possible using the API included.

* 300 kHz to 8 GHz operation
* -15 dBm to +15 dBm dynamic range
* Fast 55 μs frequency settling time to 10 ppm
* Fast amplitude settling: < 25 μs to 1 dB and < 200 μs to 0.1 dB
* Sweep, hop and list of frequency and level or list phase and level
* 100 dBc/Hz phase noise typical at 1 GHz and 10 kHz offset
