Benchtop YIG Synthesizers Offer Industry-Leading Phase Noise

We're pleased to announce that we've increased the offerings for our high-performance, low phase noise benchtop frequency synthesizers. In sync with our evolving catalog of YIG synthesizer components, our custom-tuned benchtop YIG synthesizer line now offers RF and microwave designers working at frequencies up to 20 GHz the chance to upgrade their test benches with the best technology at their specific bands.

Offering up to -125 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset phase noise at a carrier frequency of 10 GHz, these frequency synthesizers set the standard for phase noise performance. They are also capable of tuning speeds up to 50 uS over wide bands, and offer output power levels of +15 dBm, with power leveling in frequency bands up to 10 GHz.

Spectrum Analyzer Extension Modules

OML can extend the frequency range of your existing spectrum analyzer to millimeter wave frequencies with our single diode unbalanced harmonic mixers. Harmonic mixers are available for the waveguide bands between 18 and 325 GHz. These frequency extension modules are compatible with most spectrum analyzers that offer optional external mixer access. By substituting the harmonic mixer for the existing microwave input, you can expand your spectrum analyzer frequency coverage for millimeter wave measurements.

Qorvo® to Create State-of-the-Art Semiconductor Packaging Center

Qorvo® has been selected by the U.S. government to create a State-of-the-Art (SOTA) Heterogeneous Integrated Packaging (SHIP) RF production and prototyping center. The SHIP program will ensure that microelectronics packaging expertise and leadership is available for both U.S. defense contractors and commercial clients that require design, validation, assembly, test and manufacturing of next-generation RF components.

The exclusive SHIP Other Transaction Agreement (OTA), worth up to $75 million, was awarded to Qorvo by the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Crane Division. This program is funded by the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering’s (OUSD R&E) Trusted and Assured Microelectronics Program (T&AM), and is administered by the Strategic & Spectrum Missions Advanced Resilient Trusted System (S²MARTS) Other Transaction Agreement (OTA), managed by National Security Technology Accelerator (NSTXL).

Under the SHIP program, Qorvo will design and deliver the highest levels of heterogeneous packaging integration. This is essential to meet the size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C) requirements for next-generation phased array radar systems, unmanned vehicles, electronic warfare platforms and satellite communications.
