LO PLL USB MAX2871 ADF4350 ADF4351

The frequency synthesizer can be used in several operation modes:

  • signal source controlled from the PC
  • autonomous signal source which can generate four frequencies preprogrammed by the user
  • beacon which can send CW text, the scan mode with up to four frequencies.

All beacon parameters are user programmable with help of our PLL software included in this KIT.
