Pasternack coaxial RF noise sources (also known as noise generators) are diode-based microwave components that produce white noise for system performance evaluation such as noise figure. Pasternack's RF noise sources / noise generators are used in production and lab test environments and are available with two different noise outputs including medium noise sources and high noise sources.
Pasternack's 50 Ohm RF noise sources are available with SMA RF outputs and BNC bias inputs or SMA connector inputs and have operating frequencies ranging from 1 GHz to 18 GHz. These RF noise sources have a maximum noise output between 15.5 dB and 35 dB excess noise ratio (ENR). Many of our RF coaxial noise sources are REACH or RoHS compliant.
