Q-Band Mechanically Tuned Gunn Oscillator

42 GHz, ±0.50 GHz Tuning Bandwidth, +18 dBm Output Power, WR-22 Waveguide
Availability:4 to 6 Weeks ARO
SOM-42301318-22-S1 is a Q-band, mechanically tuned Gunn oscillator that utilizes a high performance GaAs Gunn diode and proprietary cavity design to deliver +18 dBm typical power. The oscillator features a frequency tuning range of 41.5 to 42.5 GHz and delivers low AM/FM noise and harmonic emissions. Compared to its counterparts, such as multiplier based sources, the Gunn oscillator is a lower cost and cleaner source. The Gunn oscillator's frequency can also be tuned by varying the bias voltage, which is useful for phase-locking and electrical-tuning applications. The Gunn oscillator is equipped with a self-locking set screw for frequency trimming. Models with a micrometer for lab and test bench applications are available under a different model number. The performance of the oscillator can be further enhanced by adding an optional isolator, Gunn oscillator modulator/regulator and temperature heater.
