Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced what it touts as a high-precision PXIe frequency reference module that generates clean 10MHz and 100MHz signals for high-performance RF systems. The Agilent M9300A targets applications that require low phase noise, 100MHz local oscillator such as those in a range of wireless and aerospace/defence test systems, added the firm.

The frequency reference is packaged into a one-slot PXIe module and uses a fractional-N design that cuts phase noise and spurs. The M9300A features the ability to lock to an external reference from 1-110MHz and provide flexibility with multiple outputs. These include five 100MHz outputs each with nominal phase noise performance of 10dBm output amplitude; one 10MHz output and one 10MHz OCXO timebase output with phase noise of Engineers can use the M9300A PXIe frequency reference with the Agilent M9380A CW source or the M9381A PXIe vector signal generator to achieve its high-performance specifications, including greater speed. As the M9300A conforms to the PXI standard, it can be used in any PXI system where PXIe or PXI-H slots are available, regardless of the vendor, added Agilent.

Instrument control is provided through a soft front panel and programmatic interfaces tuned to the customer's application development environment of choice. The Agilent IO Libraries Suite enables fast and easy integration into existing test environments, stated the company.

Available now, the Agilent M9300A">M9300A PXIe frequency reference is priced at $4,099. One M9300A module can be shared between multiple modular instruments.
