Wideband Mixer 

DS Instruments’ MX20000 (MX6800KU) is a wideband high-performance mixer with integrated 12GHz – 24GHz Local Oscillator. LO frequency can be set with front controls, USB commands, or the provided windows PC application. Using its ultra-low noise internal reference source the LO signal has extremely low phase noise. The MX20000 makes an extremely convenient upconverter or downconverter by eliminating the need for extra cabling and a separate bulky, expensive high-frequency signal source.

Off the Shelf Power Sensors

LadyBug Technologies has increased its stock product inventory to include a full selection of general purpose sensors, peak and pulse sensors and pulse profiling sensors. Off the shelf products include sensors with frequency ranges to 40 GHz and dynamic range to 26 dBm. LadyBug sensors are thermally stabilized and utilize the company’s patented No-Zero features. These features allow stable, accurate measurements down to the sensor’s noise floor without user zeroing.
