Compact Opto-Electronic Oscillator (OEO)
Available from OEwaves, Inc.
Compact OEO offers extremely low phase noise and low vibration & acceleration sensitivity for signal source modules required in high-frequency, high performance applications. Available in any output frequency between 10 - 12 GHz (consult factory for other frequencies). Compact OEO offers typical phase noise performance levels of better than - 140 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset
The unique design of Compact OEO is based on the photonic generation of spectrally pure signals at RF and millimeter wave frequencies that enables OEwaves signal sources to scale to higher frequencies with little or no penalty in phase noise performance.
The high performance of Compact OEO allows for clean and precise phase noise measurements, enhanced military radar system visibility by several fold, increased channel capacity of communications systems by an order of magnitude, and high capacity, high frequency future wireless communications systems. This level of performance will enable manufacturers to retrofit current systems as well as architect capabilities to address new markets.
