Fairview Microwave has introduced a new series of miniature SMT packaged noise sources that are suitable for built-in test equipment, dithering for an increased dynamic range of A/D converters, and as a source for bit error rate testing. The new series includes nine models that cover frequency ranges from 0.2MHz to 3GHz with dual in-line pin (DIP) and industry-standard SMT gullwing pin surface-mount packaging options.


The new series provides a source of additive white gaussian noise (AWGN) with a crest factor of 5:1 and boasts a noise output power level of -5dBm in the DIP models. The SMT gullwing pin models in this line feature high output ENR levels ranging from 31 dB to 51 dB.


These new noise sources come in rugged 50 Ohm designs with a wide operating temperature range of -55°C to +125°C and require DC voltage levels of +12 Vdc or +15 Vdc. They are suitable for applications such as microwave radio, communication systems, military and commercial radar, base station infrastructure, test and measurement, and telecom data links.
