Cross-correlation phase noise test system from AnaPico AG offered by distributor Saelig

FAIRPORT, N.Y., 8 March 2013. Electronics distributor Saelig Co. Inc. in Fairport, N.Y., is offering the APPH30G high-performance cross-correlation phase noise test system from AnaPico AG in Zurich, Switzerland.

The test & measurement instrument is for 5 MHz to 30 GHz frequencies for evaluating RF and microwave signal sources such as crystal oscillators, PLL synthesizers, clocks, phase-locked VCOs, and DROs.

The APPH30G measures single sideband residual and additive phase noise, amplitude noise, and baseband noise. The self-contained instrument with cross-correlator engine and internal low noise reference sources to enable one-click measurements of frequencies as high as 30 GHz.

The APPH30G offers measurement functions , etc. It provides phase and amplitude noise measurement, residual noise characterization, or direct access to the FFT analyzer for baseband signal and (LF) noise analysis.

Using cross-correlation measurement and self-calibration, the device obtains reproducible measurements even under changing environmental conditions. Automated frequency acquisition and self-calibration can simplify use.

The APPH30G is optionally available with LAN (VXI-11), USBTMC, or GPIB interfaces. A user interface, API library, and SCPI command language set is provided.

Measurements supported include additive or absolute phase noise measurement using internal or external references; amplitude noise measurements and other automated measurements for evaluating RF signal sources. SSB phase noise; amplitude noise; AM noise measurement; additive or residual noise characterization; and baseband noise measurements to 30 GHz.

Designed to operate from external 6-volt DC power at altitudes to 15,000 feet, the device operates in temperatures from zero to 45 degrees Celsius, and weighs nine pounds.
