Title: A Precision Millimeter-Wave Modulated-Signal Source
Published: June 06, 2013
Abstract: We develop and characterize a modulated-signal source for use at millimeter-wave frequencies. Components within the source are phase locked by a 10 GHz reference source to minimize drift and improve synchronization. The complex frequency response of the source is characterized with a calibrated sampling oscilloscope. We illustrate use of the source by determining the phase error of a vector signal analyzer.
