Bringing insight to fruition since 1990!


In 2021, Insight Product Company released a number of Linear Electron Accelerators (linacs) with state-of-the-art performance metrics.

Insight Product Company specializes in the design, engineering, and manufacturing of millimeter (mm-wave) and terahertz (thz) frequency synthesizers, sources, detectors, mixers, and frequency multipliers.

We custom design and deliver millimeter and terahertz systems and sub-systems based on the customer’s specific needs. We also offer a wide selection of "standard" systems and subsytems.

Microwave & RF Journal (Jack Browne) has repeatedly lauded Insight Product Co.'s millimeter wave frequency synthesizers (Insight FS), in March 2007 they wrote:

"When a frequency synthesizer requirement calls for millimeter-wave signals, few firms can match the lineup offered by Insight Product Co. ( with models spanning 36 to 1250 GHz. The company's 120 to 180 GHz source, for example, provides more than 30 mW output power over that range and can be operated locally from the front-panel keypad or remotely under GPIB control. The company features three sources covering 370 to 535 GHz, 526 to 714 GHz, and 667 to 857 GHz with power levels from 4 to 15 mW."

Insight Product Co. is the unique source for Phase Lock Loop (PLL) millimeter and terahertz range frequency synthesizers that operate with a standard microwave signal generator (Agilent for example). Any laboratory or organization that has a microwave singal generator can easily expand its research activity into the terathertz and millimeter wave range. Insight FS frequency synthesizers and extensions deliver consistent output power up to 3 THz.

In 2009, Insight Product Co. launched a new SL technology that is utilized in manufacturing our frequency multipliers operating up to 3 THz. This frequency range is not reachable by any other multipliers, including Schottky diode multiplers. At 1.5 THz, our multipliers deliver about 10 times more power than Schottky multipliers. Insight Product Co.'s SL frequency multipliers can dramatically increase the frequency of any solid state of vacuum tube based source or frequency generator. We offer on-site installation and support for all our product line, both "standard" and custom designed. Our Backward Wave Oscillator (BWO) generators are highly reliable. All Insight Product Co. systems and components come with a 1 year warranty which includes guarantee to replace it at no cost.

In 2005, Microwave & RF Journal wrote that Insight Product’s frequency synthesizers are “Ideal for measurement and astronomy applications, these synthesizers can be equipped with optional AM and FM capabilities and GPIB remote control."

Insight Product Co. is the sole source for Hot Electron Bolometer (HEB) technology detectors that allow rapid and the highest sensitivity detection of terahertz radiation from 100 GHz to 70 THz.

Mikhail L. Gershteyn, President of Insight Product Co., was an invited speaker at the 2006 SURA Terahertz Applications Symposium (Washington DC).
