DDS drivers (DIRECT DIGITAL SYNTHESIZER)


To get a high resolution driver with fast switching time, we provide direct digital synthesizers based on monolithic IC circuits. Three models have already been released, and different units can be designed to specific requirements.
These models offer high frequency accuracy and stability and extremely fast switching times, generally of a few tens of nanoseconds.

The DAC circuits have been designed with utmost care to obtain clean RF signals, with minimum spurious noise.


VCO drivers (VOLTAGE CONTROLLER OSCILLATOR)


These drivers are suitable for general purpose applications

(raster scan, or random access...).

The VCO can be modulated (amplitude) from an external signal.
The frequency is externally controlled by an analog signal. An external medium power amplifier will be required to generate the RF power levels required by the AO device.
