Coaxial Packaged Noise Sources from Pasternack

Coaxial Packaged Noise Sources

Pasternack offers various types of noise source design configurations including octave band and broadband noise sources, amplified noise sources, noise sources with integral isolators, and precision calibrated instrumentation grade noise sources.

Pasternack’s noise sources are generally used as a reference source to measure system level noise figure for test and measurement applications. More specific applications could involve system and component level wireless testing, signal simulation, evaluating analog and DOCSYS CATV systems to improve the dynamic range of analog-to-digital converters by dithering and reducing correlated noise. Additional applications could involve simulation of RF jamming systems for missile guidance, use as a source for bit error rate (BER) testing for SATCOM and digital radio systems, and a source for Gaussian jitter for testing of optoelectronic devices.

Our models cover frequency bands ranging from 100 KHz to 60 GHz. This portfolio of coaxial noise sources boast a wide range of output ENR levels from 7 dB to 35 dB. The amplified models have output power levels ranging from -14 dBm to +10 dBm. Circuit board designs use packaged noise diodes and other discrete components that are tuned for optimum performance. Modules are enclosed in rugged metal packages with a variety of DC and output RF connector options. Most models in this family are designed to meet MIL-STD-202F environmental test conditions and all models are EAR99.
