The DCNTS is a two-channel Phase and Amplitude noise analyser. Its dual demodulator architecture allows the system to use cross-correlation to cancel its internal noise and limitation; it is like comparing the outputs of 2 systems and only displays the similarities while rejecting differences.
It is capable of measuring absolute phase or amplitude noise but also residual phase noise under CW or pulsed conditions. The input frequency goes from a few MHz to 140GHz. Residual noise testing is for devices like frequency multipliers or dividers, amplifiers or any other phase coherent input to output device.
Pulse compatible, the system is perfect for very demanding defence and aerospace applications. Its state-of-the-art dynamic range makes it the lowest noise floor instrument on the market.
