ALLEN, Texas – Fairview Microwave Inc. in Allen, Texas, is introducing the model FMWGN1001 waveguide Gunn oscillator for RF and microwave applications in radio communications, millimeter-wave frequency test and measurement, military and commercial radar, police radar, Doppler sensors, and security screening.

The model FMWGN1001 provides a cost-effective source for microwave power with frequency and power stability while generating low-phase-noise.

It is a K-Band waveguide Gunn oscillator module that generates a center frequency of 24.125 GHz and can be tuned up to +/- 1.0 GHz via a self-locking tuning screw.

The high external Q and temperature compensation mechanism exhibits high frequency and power stability, low phase-noise and high anti-load-pulling characteristics.

Performance specs include phase noise of -95 dBc/Hz typical at 100 KHz offset, and frequency stability of -0.4 MHz/ per degree Celsius maximum. The output power of this oscillator is +10 dBm minimum with power stability of -0.04 dB/ per degree Celsius maximum. Bias supply is +5 volts DC at 200 milliamps typical with an operating temperature range of -40 to 85 C.

The design uses high-performance components in a rugged and compact aluminum package with a precision-machined internal cavity design. The output frequency port supports a WR-42 UG-595/U waveguide flange interface.
