MLO Project – extension

Successfully completed ESA project “Development and Qualification of Dual Redundant Medium Power Master Signal Source” ended with a demonstration of the engineering model in an operating environment. Apart from a very low value of phase noise in the new device, our simulations brought new ideas related to the Master Local Oscillator (MLO), showing potential for further reduction of phase noise using a push-push configuration.

To validate the promising applicability of the push-push configuration for space-qualified packaged transistors, we have just started an 8-month extension of the MLO project with ESA.
