Waveguide Gunn Diode Oscillators Low On Phase Noise

Pasternack’s latest line of compact waveguide Gunn diode oscillators are tunable and generate signal levels that reportedly exhibit low phase noise at K and Ka band frequencies. Typical applications include transmit and receive oscillators for radio communications, local oscillator source that can be multiplied for higher mm-wave frequency test and measurement, military and commercial radar sources, police radar, Doppler sensors and security screening.

 

The oscillators feature extremely high external Q and a temperature compensation mechanism. Two models make up the series. The PEWGN1001 model is a K-Band waveguide Gunn oscillator module that generates a center frequency of 24.125 GHz with a tuning range of +/- 1.0 GHz. The PEWGN1000 model generates a Ka band center frequency of 35 GHz with a tuning range of +/- 3.0 GHz.  Both models incorporate self-locking tuning screws.
