The multi-channel architecture is a complete success story. These compact, 1U high, 19in rack mountable chassis can be configured with up to 8 independently tunable channels. All integrated channels are 100% phase coherent.
Holzworth has designed the multi-channel platform for integration of our HSM Series Single Channel Synthesizers to maximize channel-to-channel stability via a conductively cooled, fan-less enclosure.
The internal Reference Distribution Subsystem is designed to support phase coherency across all loaded channels (internal synthesizer modules). In addition to free running, the multi-channel synthesizer can operate from either a 10MHz or 100MHz external reference, while supplying dedicated fixed 10MHz and 100MHz reference output signals.
HS9000 SERIES MULTI-CHANNEL SYNTHESIZERS
Holzworth now offers the HS9000 Series Multi-Channel Synthesizers, allowing the user to specify anywhere from 1 to 8 independent channels (per 1U chassis) with any combination of frequencies spanning from 250kHz to 6.7GHz. This user defined platform provides the flexibility to tailor a multi-channel source to an application with short lead times and optimal price points.
HS9000 SERIES PART NUMBER SELECTION
The HS9000 Series synthesizer platform is designed to be user/application defined. Follow 4 easy steps to determine the part number with the required options.
STEP 1: SELECT TOTAL NUMBER OF CHANNELS
Select the base part number, strictly calling out the total number of channels to be loaded into the multi-channel chassis.
|....Number of Channels||1||2||3||4||5||6||7||8|
STEP 2: SELECT CHANNEL FREQUENCY OPTIONS
Select any combination of channel frequency options. Note that the total number of channels specified here must equal the number of channels selected under STEP 1.
|Frequency Range||Number of Channels per Frequency Range|
|CMOS OUTPUT||OPT- CMOS1||OPT- CMOS2||OPT- CMOS3||OPT- CMOS4||OPT- CMOS5||OPT- CMOS6||OPT- CMOS7||OPT- CMOS8|
|250kHz - 1GHz||OPT-A1||OPT-A2||OPT-A3||OPT-A4||OPT-A5||OPT-A6||OPT-A7||OPT-A8|
|250kHz - 2GHz||OPT-B1||OPT-B2||OPT-B3||OPT-B4||OPT-B5||OPT-B6||OPT-B7||OPT-B8|
|250kHz - 3GHz||OPT-C1||OPT-C2||OPT-C3||OPT-C4||OPT-C5||OPT-C6||OPT-C7||OPT-C8|
|250kHz - 4GHz||OPT-D1||OPT-D2||OPT-D3||OPT-D4||OPT-D5||OPT-D6||OPT-D7||OPT-D8|
|250kHz - 6.4GHz||OPT-E1||OPT-E2||OPT-E3||OPT-E4||OPT-E5||OPT-E6||OPT-E7||OPT-E8|
|10MHz - 12.5GHz||OPT-X1||OPT-X2||OPT-X3||OPT-X4||N/A||N/A||N/A||N/A|
|10MHz - >20GHz||OPT-F1||OPT-F2||OPT-F3||OPT-F4||N/A||N/A||N/A||N/A|
STEP 3: SELECT ADDITIONAL OPTIONS & ACCESSORIES
The options listed in this section are available for the multi-channel platform to comply with application specific requirements.
¹ OPT-PWR18-n is only available for channel options A-E (up to 6.4GHz). Channel Options X (12.5GHz) and F (20GHz) come standard with +18dBm calibrated output.
