Synchronization Module

ASU – Analog Synchronization Unit

Affordable synchronization between RF sources

  • Lock fundamental and harmonic frequency at the same time
  • Digital phase detector for lock
  • 24-bit ADC with an integrated configurable digital filter for harmonic frequency locking

Description

The fully automated ASU detects the time delay between an optical pulse train and the zero-crossings of a microwave signal.

It generates a baseband signal that is proportional to the timing error between the two inputs, which in turn can be used in a phase-locked loop configuration to synchronize a laser to a microwave source or vice versa or two microwave sources.
