Insight Product Company introduces a family of new wide band synthesizers of millimeter and submillimeter waves (Insight FS). Insight FS cover frequencies from 36 to 1250 GHz and generate substantial output power.

In the millimeter wave range, each synthesizer covers a full waveguide band (Q, U, V, E, W, F, D, G, Y, J). Insight FS provides several options for frequency and amplitude modulation (analog FM/AM modulation, frequency manipulation, pulses modulation).  Insight FS are compact in size and controlled by IEEE, analog input, or manually.

Typical applications:

EPR, NMR/ MRI, Gas spectroscopy, Plasma diagnostics,  millimeter and sub millimeter wave network analyzers, heterodyne receivers, Gyrotron experiments etc.

-High output power
-Extremely stable frequency
-Wide tunability
-Wide possibility of frequency and amplitude modulation and manipulation,
-Operates independently in free running mode as generator or with microwave signal generator as synthesizer
-Convenient for heterodyne and direct detection receiver systems
-Ease of control and operation
-High reliability
