Anaheim, Calif., 14 June 2010. At the International Microwave Symposium, Noise Extended Technologies S.A.S. (Noise XT) makes its U.S. debut and first public exhibition since the buy-out by employees of Aeroflex-Europtest, Elancourt, France.
Noise XT is unveiling its Dual Channel Phase Noise Test System (DCNTS), a two-channel phase and amplitude noise analyzer designed with a dual demodulator architecture. These characteristics enable the test system to use cross-correlation to cancel its internal noise. The resulting tests are similar to comparing the output of two separate systems, while displaying only the similarities and rejecting the differences. The residual noise measurement front-end includes all the necessary hardware to automatically measure noise on 2-port devices, either in RF or microwave frequencies.
Pulse-compatible, the DCNTS is well suited for aerospace and defense applications. Noise XT products are used for high-performance phase noise and jitter-sensitive applications, such as ultra-low noise crystal, surface acoustic wave (SAW), and optical-electrical-optical (OEO) microwave oscillators; RF and microwave amplifiers; pulsed microwave for radar; continuous-wave RF; and other demanding noise applications.
“Aeroflex-Europtest has always been motivated by our customers’ challenges,” says Guillaume de Giovanni, president of Noise XT. “As a single-focus company, Noise XT is ready to partner with customers again to offer the highest-performance noise solutions on the planet. Our passion for solving the most difficult problems is as strong as ever.”
