Original Press Release:

Valon Technology Introduces the Valon 5015, a 15GHz Frequency Synthesizer Module for High-Precision Applications

Valon’s latest addition to its range of high-frequency synthesizer sources extends the available frequency range to 15GHz with exceptionally low phase noise


Valon Technology, an innovator of radio frequency products for wired and wireless applications, announced the availability of the Valon 5015 wide-range frequency synthesizer module. Designed for use in critical frequency synthesis and clocking applications, the Valon 5015 uses multiple phase-lock loops to provide high-level, low-phase noise signals throughout the 10MHz to 15GHz range.

Designed and manufactured in California, Valon’s range of frequency synthesizers are perfect for a wide variety of applications that require a spectrally pure and highly stable signal source or timing clock, such as wireless engineering, point-to-point microwave communications, electro-optics, molecular spectroscopy, particle physics, and radio astronomy.

“I am looking forward to evaluating the new Valon 5015. I like the good value of the Valon 5009 synthesizer for solving our projects’ needs. We are currently using them for injecting calibration tones into our MA-C signals intelligence receiver system,” said Steve Ahlport, CTO of VStar Systems Inc., a security technology company.

“Our synthesizers often replace laboratory generators costing many times more. They are rugged, reliable and versatile — and deliver a breakthrough combination of cost and performance,” said Stuart Rumley, owner and president of Valon Technology. “We listened to our customers’ requests for a low-cost, easy-to-integrate, module. The new Valon 5015 frequency synthesizer addresses all these requirements at an extremely competitive price point. The key feature of all Valon products is how easily and simply they can be incorporated into the user equipment.”
