Phase Comparator-Analyzer VCH-323new

Phase comparator-analyzer VCH-323 is intended for precise frequency instability and phase noise measurements (Allan deviation, L(f)).

Key applications:
- Metrological characteristics monitoring of the of precise signal sources, including crystal oscillators and quantum frequency standards;
- Scientific research measurements.

Specification:
The comparator has two identical measuring channels (three inputs) and uses correlation processing providing extremely low measurement error and the frequency instability calculation of each input signals.
Input signals: sinusoidal in frequency range from 1 up to 100 MHz (different frequencies at all inputs are allowed), level (0.6−1.2) Vrms, 50 Ohm load.
Noise bandwidth: 1, 10, 100, 1000 Hz.
Averaging time range: 0.001 s to 106 s.
Phase noise spectrum measurement range: 0.001 Hz to 100 kHz.
