Active RF Mixer / RF Signal Generator – MixNV
The Windfreak MixNV is a 1 MHz to 6 GHz software programmable RF mixer (upconvert or downconvert) with a built in Local Oscillator controlled and powered by a PC running Windows, Linux or Android.
The oscillator will tune from 85MHz to 5GHz in 1Hz steps using an advanced sigma-delta modulator PLL that delivers low fractional spurious products and excellent phase noise.
The MixNV also has nonvolatile on board memory so it can be programmed to fire up by itself to any LO frequency, FSK modulation, or other settings. This makes for a highly mobile, low power and light weight solution for your RF frequency conversion needs.
The MixNV is designed as a stand alone mixer for use in RF and Microwave communications products or test setups but has the ability to self bias the mixer such that it can be used as a signal generator with fine frequency resolution. It also has the ability to perform 2 level FSK (Frequency Shift Keyed) Modulation with finely adustable frequency deviation via software or offboard external 3.3V cmos drive. Use the open source Windfreak software, or the device can be controlled easily with 3rd party programs such as Hyperterminal or other freeware serial communications terminals across many operating systems.
