Pasternack has just released a new series of miniature SMT packaged noise sources that are suited for built-in test equipment, dithering for increased dynamic range of A/D converters and as a source for bit error rate testing. Applications include communication systems, microwave radio, military and commercial radar, test and measurement, base station infrastructure and telecom data links.

Pasternack’s new noise sources include nine models with industry standard SMT gullwing pin and dual in-line pin (DIP) surface mount packaging options. They cover frequency ranges from 0.2MHz to 3GHz and provide a source of additive white gaussian noise (AWGN) with a crest factor of 5:1.

The SMT gullwing pin models in this line feature high output ENR levels ranging from 31 dB to 51 dB. The DIP models boast a noise output power level of -5dBm. These rugged 50 Ohm designs require DC voltage levels of +12 or +15Vdc and can operate over a wide temperature range of -55 to +125°C.

“Pasternack now offers a comprehensive selection of miniature SMT packaged noise sources to address the needs of designers for circuit board level proof-of-concept or prototype applications. These products normally require eight to ten week lead times, but we are able to provide them quickly with same-day shipping and no minimum order quantity,” said Tim Galla, Senior Product Line Manager at Pasternack.
