Pulse, Frequency Reference, Fiber Optic and Lock-in Distribution Amplifiers</>

  • three, six and ten channel 10 MHz frequency reference amplifiers address the needs of localized and distributed references
  • amplifiers are ±2 dB from 50 KHz to 10 MHz (DC to 10 MHz option available)
    minimal phase noise contribution
  • signal level indicators quickly alert to a signal loss or over-drive situation
  • individual channel fault indicators facilitate system maintenance
  • software defined radio synchronization with multi-channel PPS
    software defined radio oscillator stabilization
  • all inputs and outputs fault and transient protected
  • Lock-in amplifiers restore an existing reference or create a new locked frequency
  • three and ten channel amplifiers can be operated from DC (-60 to +60 VDC) or AC power
  • Use the NF0100 to covert any copper reference signal to fiber optic and back to copper- excellent noise immunity and low phase noise options

Novus also offers Pulse Distribution Amplifiers (ND0100-P, ND0103-P).</>

Sub Categories

10 Channel Amplifier

Ten identical amplifiers feature skew of ~ 5 ns. Each channel independently monitored for load impedance mis-match with independent warning indicators on the front panel. Harmonic distortion well below -30 dBc. Minimal additive phase noise. Wide bandwidth amplifier operates from 50 KHz to 10 MHz (±2 dB). DC to 10 MHz bandwidth option available.

Fiber Optic Frequency Reference Converter

Let the NF0100 convert a copper reference signal to 1300 nm single mode or multi-mode and back to copper. This single channel converter allows the system designer the ability to address a single distant location or address a high noise environment quickly and cost effectively. The NF0100 is available in configurations that convert from copper to fiber and fiber back to copper. The NF0100-LN creates a channel with phase noise performance that compares to copper -140dBc/Hz.

10 Channel Pulse Amplifier

Ten channel pulse distribution amplifier. Ten identical amplifiers feature skew of ˜5 ns. Each channel independently monitored for load impedance mis-match with independent warning indicators on the front panel. Synchronize multi-channel software defined radio systems.

3 Channel Amplifier

Three channel high performance reference amplifier 20 KHz to 10 MHz (DC option extends low end to DC). 3 Volts p-p into 50 Ohms, 6 Volts p-p into 1KOhm. Operates from DC power from -60 to +60 Vdc in three ranges. Harmonic distortion well below -30 dBc. Minimal additive phase noise.

3 Channel Pulse Amplifier

Three channel pulse distribution amplifier. Skew of ˜5 ns. Each channel independently monitored for load impedance mis-match with independent warning indicators on the front panel. Synchronize multi-channel software defined radio systems. Operates from DC power from -60 to +60 Vdc in three ranges. AC power adapter available.

Lock-in Amplifier

Many system require a reference that is a different frequency and must be locked to the primary reference. Large installations occasionally have to clean-uo a reference that has been routed a long-distance. A Lock-in amplifer will restore the amplitude and phase noise and maintain system timing. A lock-in amplifier can generate an alternate frequency locked to the primary system reference.

 

16 Channel Amplifier

The ND0116 is our most versatile distribution amplifier platform. In its base configuration, it is a high performance low noise sixteen channel amplifier. Each channel is fault and transient protected and monitored by an AC to DC converter. The output voltage of each channel is accessible on the front panel display or serial link enabling amplifier monitoring (or SNMP option) that can detect degrading channel conditions before a complete channel failure. Alerts can be set to detect a predefined output level threshold. Rear panel channel indicators facilitate system troubleshooting
