RF Signal Generator plus RF Detector – SynthNV PRO

The SynthNV PRO is a highly calibrated 12.5 MHz to 6.4 GHz RF Signal Generator plus broadband RF detector / power meter.  The SynthNV Pro accomplishes Scalar Network Analysis for both through and reflected (requires  external 3rd party directional coupler) responses of RF devices such as filters, amplifiers, antennas, cavities and matching networks. Frequency set to RFout – then measure RFin sweeps run at 150uS per point.  Notably, the SynthNV PRO also has a 16 band high speed switching harmonic filter on its output that attenuates harmonics up to 60 dBc.

An update to the ever popular SynthNV sold since 2010:

  • Low harmonic distortion
  • 100uS large frequency steps (phase lock to phase lock)
  • 0.1Hz frequency step size
  • 0.01dB amplitude step size
  • 0.01 degree output phase adjust
  • Instantaneous, Peak, and Average on power measurement input
  • Built in frequency dependent calibrations on both TX and RX
  • FM, AM and Pulse via internal and external modulations
  • 500 point frequency and power hop lookup table
  • Sweep with constant frequency step, or percentage
  • Sweep or step modulated wave forms
  • Powerful external triggering
  • Onboard speaker can change pitch with RF input power (bug sniffing or audible tuning feedback)
  • Network Analyzer app also has audio frequency selective feedback
  • Possible option for an OLED display (TBD)
  • Option for UART control (through USB-C connector)
  • Plans for USB-C adapters allowing RS485, RS232, Wifi and Ethernet to UART bridges
  • Fast 32 bit ARM processor with floating point math unit
  • 12 bit ADC for the power detector < 0.05dB resolution
  • Digital temperature compensation
  • Shielded RX for better isolation
  • Stack-able high quality milled aluminum enclosure
  • Low power draw via power connector or USB type C
  • Windows open source GUI or command line Linux and Android control
  • Designed and manufactured in the USA with maximized value / cost ratio
  • Contact us for custom firmware and hardware options
  • Datasheet coming in early 2019
