Programmable RF Mixer/Signal Generator can up- or down-convert.

Press Release Summary:




Designed as stand-alone mixer for use in RF and microwave communications products or test setups, software-programmable Windfreak MixNV also includes ability to self-bias mixer for use as signal generator. It can also perform 2-level FSK modulation with adjustable frequency deviation via software or off-board external 3.3 V CMOS drive. While RF I/O ports accommodate 30 MHz to 5 GHz signals, built-in Local Oscillator (LO) can be adjusted from 85 MHz to 5 GHz in 1 Hz steps.



Original Press Release:



Saelig Introduces Programmable Active 30MHz to 5GHz RF Mixer / RF Signal Generator



MixNV is an innovative low-cost software-programmable RF mixer and signal source



Fairport, NY, USA:  Saelig Company, Inc. announces the new Windfreak MixNV - an economical 30MHz to 5GHz software-programmable RF mixer which can up-convert or down-convert.  It features a built in Local Oscillator (LO) that is controlled and powered by a PC running Windows XP, Windows 7 or 8 via its USB port.  The RF I/O ports can accommodate RF signals in the 30MHz to 5GHz range, but the built-in local oscillator can be adjusted from 85MHz to 5GHz in 1Hz steps using an advanced sigma-delta modulator phase-lock loop. This provides very low fractional spurious products and excellent phase noise. The MixNV also features on-board nonvolatile memory so it can be programmed to wake on power-up to any preset oscillator frequency, FSK modulation, or a variety of other settings.



The MixNV is designed as a stand-alone mixer for use in RF and microwave communications products or test setups and has the ability to self-bias the mixer so that it can be used as a signal generator with very fine frequency resolution. It also has the ability to perform two-level FSK (Frequency Shift Keyed) modulation with finely adjustable frequency deviation via software or off-board external 3.3V CMOS drive.  The MixNV is very easy to control using the supplied software or other third-party serial communication software.



The compact (2.5" x 1.375" x 0.75") MixNV is a highly mobile, low power and lightweight solution for a variety of RF frequency conversion needs.  Applications include: wireless communications systems, RF and microwave radios, software defined radio (SDR), radar, automated test equipment (ATE), EMC-radiated immunity pre-compliance testing, scalar network analysis (SNA),  local oscillator replacement, quantum device research, plasma physics, education, etc.



Designed and manufactured in USA by Windfreak Technologies, a designer of low cost, innovative RF products that are in use worldwide in a variety of technical applications, the MixNV is available now from Saelig Company, Inc. Fairport, NY. For detailed specifications, free technical assistance, or additional information, please contact Saelig at 1-888-7SAELIG, via email: info@saelig.com, or visit www.saelig.com.
