Compact Opto-Electronic Oscillator (COEO)
The Compact Opto-Electronic Oscillator (OEO) offers extremely low phase noise, low vibration, and acceleration sensitivity for signal source modules that are required in, both, high frequency and high performance applications. Available in any output frequency between 10-12 GHz (consult factory for other frequencies), the Compact OEO offers typical phase noise performance levels of better than -140 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset from the carrier. The Compact OEO is offered with a variety of scalable features and options.
The unique design of Compact OEO is based on the photonic generation of spectrally pure signals at RF and millimeter wave frequencies that enable OEwaves' signal sources to scale to higher frequencies with little to no penalty in phase noise performance.
Its ultra-low phase noise empowers clean and precise phase noise measurements,enhances military radar system visibility by several fold, and increases channel capacity for high frequency wireless communication systems by an order of magnitude. This level of performance will enable manufacturers to retrofit current systems as well as architect capabilities to address new markets.
OEwaves' Compact Opto-Electronic Oscillator and associated technical data are subject to the controls of the International Traffic In Arms Regulations (ITAR). Export, re-export, or transfer of these items by any means to a foreign person or entity, whether in the US or abroad, without US State Department authorization, is prohibited and may result in substantial penalties.
