Open Source RF Signal Generator Features Wi-Fi Connectivity

Istanbul-based startup ERA Instruments has launched a crowd-funding campaign to bring its ERASynth RF Signal Generator into mass production.

The campaign -hosted on the Crowd Supply– is targeting to raise $40,000 to fund the final stages of development and mass production of the ERASynth, an RF signal generator with remarkably low phase noise and impressive output frequency range of 250kHz to 15GHz.

ERA Instruments utilized latest PLL/VCO RFICs to create a multiple-loop architecture to drop the phase noise and spurious to levels comparable to bench-top RF signal generators.

Measuring just 10 x 14.5 x 2 cm and consuming less than 7 Watts, ERASynth can be powered with a cell phone power-bank. Inclusion of an on-board Wi-Fi module and an open source web GUI makes ERASynth ideal for portable applications.

    Is there any information about amplitude accuracy?

    Alperen, Thank you for your interest in ERASynth. At the moment, we are still doing tests to see how our open loop calibration performs. We will publish the results as an upcoming campaign update. Please follow our campaign page for updates.
