A Hybrid Solution That Should Be in Your Next Project

Windfreak Technologies was one of the first companies in the world to introduce low-cost USB RF signal generators that operate continuously across large frequency ranges. These “hybrid” solutions continue to be game-changers for many reasons. Until Windfreak devices came out, a prospective buyer had two choices when it came to RF signal generator solutions. The buyer could either purchase a $20K+ benchtop box with all the bells and whistles, or they could purchase a $6K narrowband “synthesizer”, either hardcoded to one frequency, or with an RS-232 programming port to figure out. Both of these solutions would typically take eight+ weeks to deliver. They are generally build-to-order components.  Windfreak sells radio frequency products that are very small modules, but operate much like the large expensive benchtop equipment.  They are less expensive, even compared to narrowband synthesizer modules, but can be bolted in and hardcoded to operate without a PC.  They can also be controlled via UART with ease.  Software GUI’s feel like a virtual benchtop device, plus source code is provided with purchase.  Finally, we keep these products in stock and they ship within a couple of days to anywhere in the world.
