The SC5502A is a 2-slot, 3U, PXI express, 50 MHz to 10 GHz synthesized signal source. Designed as an instrument grade RF/microwave CW source, and to meet the demanding low phase noise applications, the SC5502A employs a multiple phase-locked loop architecture as well as a YIG oscillator at the heart of its synthesizer.

Frequency accuracy is provided by an onboard 10 MHz temperature compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) which can be phase locked to an external reference source if required, and it is recommended to do so in applications that may require a more stable and accurate base reference.

The SC5502A can be used as a standalone CW signal source, or as LO source for frequency conversion systems such as the SignalCore IQ modulators and demodulators. It is designed to meet the requirements of many modern applications such as wireless device testing, software-defined radio research, point-to-point radio, multi-channel coherent systems, and other academic and military programs.
