Multi-Channel HS9000 Series Synthesizers
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
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 SPECIFICATION DOWNLOAD|
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.
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|
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.
