Noise XT today introduced the world’s first phase noise generator, setting the commercial standard for all phase noise calibration. The PNG-A (Phase Noise Generator) is small and light, weighing just 2 lbs. At under $3,000, every bench can afford one. The PNG-A is the first signal source to deliver a signal with mathematically computed phase noise in real time.
Features and technology of the PNG-A
The PNG-A is a small instrument that allows engineers and cal labs the opportunity to calibrate without wasting time building large equipment set-ups. With the PNG-A, users can verify their phase noise analyzers, jitter analyzers, and spectrum analyzers, all in a few minutes.
The user can design the exact phase noise shape, according to the instrument to be tested. Or, the user can simply load one of Noise XT’s pre-loaded generic profiles. These profiles can be chosen specifically to test an oscilloscope, a signal source analyzer, or a spectrum analyzer with phase noise features. Remote settings are through Ethernet.
The phase and amplitude noise from the PNG-A does not rely upon temperature, time, humidity, or other environmental conditions to perform perfectly. The phase and amplitude noise are always correct. Phase noise calibration can be performed on a ship, an airplane, a secured lab, or any manufacturing facility—all without requiring bothersome logistics.
Noise XT’s unique intellectual property is embedded in a complex FPGA. It has been engineered according to complex mathematical calculations; internal architecture allows continuous verification of the generated signal. The virtualization of the signal generation allows great flexibility as the PNG-A can generate a programmable phase or amplitude profile.
Phase Noise profile setting: -120 dBc/Hz to 0 dBc/Hz
Amplitude Noise profile setting: -120 dBc/Hz to -80 dBc/Hz
Brownian and white noise combinations
Programmable spurious in offset and level from 1Hz to 1MHz and -80dBc to -20dBc
