FEATURES
Synthesizers

Synthesizers

  • API’s synthesizers offer wide bandwidth, multiple step size options, fast switching speed, and low phase noise combined with the cost advantages of standardized packages.
  • Frequency control options include Serial/parallel inputs, BCD/Binary format, or traditional thumbwheel switches.
Synthesizers

Configurable Surface Mount Synthesizers

PLOs (Phase Locked Oscillators)

PLOs (Phase Locked Oscillators)

  • API Technologies’ experience with Phase Locked Oscillators covers a period of 35 years. We have worked closely with Systems Engineers on some of the most technically sophisticated programs in the country.
  • The PLO must be compatible with other components in the system and must not only operate properly on the “bench” but must also operate properly within complex systems.
DRO's and CRO's

DROs & CROs

Comb Generators

Comb Generators

  • API Technologies' Series 95 Comb Generators use a Step Recovery Diode (SRD) to generate very narrow voltage spikes; these in turn produce an output frequency spectrum rich in harmonics.
  • The spacing between the signals is equal to the source that drives the SRD which in most cases is a stable crystal oscillator.
SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) Oscillators

SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) Oscillators

  • API Technologies, a leading manufacturer of standard and custom SAW Oscillators, combines low phase noise, excellent frequency stability and rugged construction in a line-up of cost effective SAW Oscillator solutions.
VCOs (Voltage Controlled Oscillators)

VCOs (Voltage Controlled Oscillators)

  • API Technologies' VCOs are high quality devices designed to serve both commercial and military requirements.
  • Using high performance varactor diodes and optimizing circuit design techniques, API's engineering achieves low phase noise and superior high selectivity performance.
DTOs (Digitally Tuned Oscillators)

DTOs (Digitally Tuned Oscillators)

  • Our custom designed DTOs consist of a select number of sub-band VCOs covering customer specific frequency ranges between 2 GHz and 18 GHz.
  • Additional features include: low residual FM (<-20 dBc @ 100 kHz), RF output power (+10 to +16 dBm), high reliability for military applications, and fully-customizable output connectors.
FMOs (Frequency Multiplier Oscillators)

FMOs (Frequency Multiplier Oscillators)

  • Our Frequency Multiplier Oscillator (FMO) is a compact 21 channel synthesized signal generator that provides transmit and LO signals for L-band and S-Band airborne radar systems.
  • This design incorporates a unique isolation system for exceptional phase noise performance during vibration.
MROs (Master Reference Oscillators)

MROs (Master Reference Oscillators)

  • Our Master Reference Oscillators (MROs) utilize a unique dampening structure, suspending the oscillator in mid-air isolating it from the detrimental effects of microphonics on phase noise performance.
  • We utilize SC cut crystal for stability and low noise and minimize pushing through internal voltage regulation.
Multiplied Phase Locked Oscillators

Multiplied Phase Locked Oscillators

  • With 13 models to choose from, these Multiplied PLOs incorporate unique features including: DC Voltage Regulation, Automatic Reference Sensing, Low Current Consumption and Multiple RF Outputs.
  • With an output range of 80 to 1600 MHz, these passive multiplier designs can be configured for most military airborne and ground based applications.
