High-Performance Analog Signal Generators

Anapico APLC26 June 2024 - AnaPico announced APLC and APHSP series of high-performance analog signal generators. Alongside the previously introduced APSIN and APULN series, AnaPico now offers a comprehensive range of signal generators tailored to meet various performance needs, allowing engineers to choose the optimal instrument with the best performance-price ratio. The APLC and APHSP series cover frequency ranges up to 54 GHz and 51 GHz, respectively, with output power exceeding 15 dBm at the high-frequency end. Both series support all analog modulation schemes.

When benchmarked against similar market offerings, the APLC and APHSP stand out with the following unique performance features:

  • Low Phase Noise: With phase noise levels reaching -97 dBc/Hz (APLC and APHSP) at 100 Hz, and -130 dBc/Hz (APLC) and -139 dBc/Hz (APHSP) at 20 kHz from 10 GHz, both instruments boast the lowest phase noise among market competitors.
  • Fast Frequency Switching: Consistent with our other signal sources, the APLC and APHSP achieve switching times faster than 15 μs and 5 μs, respectively, enabling rapid frequency sweeping.
  • High Signal Purity: Harmonics, subharmonics, and spurious signals are minimized, achieving levels as low as -60 dBc and -70 dBc, respectively.
  • Multi-Channel Models with Strong Phase Coherence: A single 19” 2 HU module can host up to 4 independent channels, with multiple modules phase-coherently synchronizable.

The signal generators are poised to unlock numerous applications, including wireless communications (MIMO and beamforming), radar and electronic warfare (phased array radars and electronic countermeasures), quantum computing research, and various industrial, medical, and metrological test and measurement (T&M) requirements.
