Photonically Generated RF Signals and Distribution

Product Overview

PSI offers a tunable Photonically Generated RF Signals distribution system that provides two optical phase coherent signals to support photonically-enabled RF signal generation. The proprietary injection locking techniques utilized in this system allows for generation of RF signals with very high fidelity including narrow spectral linewidth and low phase noise over a wide range of frequencies. The high-performance RF generation capabilities are suitable for a wide variety of analog and digital RF photonic applications.
