A Comb Generator is a Signal Generator that produces multiple harmonics of its input signal. The appearance of the output on a Spectrum Analyzer screen resembles the teeth of a comb, giving the device its name.
Comb Generators have a wide range of uses in Microwave technology:
- Produce synchronous signals in a wide frequency bandwidth
- Provide stable high frequency references for broadband Frequency Synthesizers
- Synchronise Phase-Lock Loop (PLL) Oscillators
- Generate a complete set of substitution channels for testing, each of which carries the same baseband audio and video signal.
Comb generators are also used in RFI testing of consumer electronics, where their output is used as simulated RF emissions, as it is a stable broadband noise source with repeatable output.
Accutronics represents the following manufacturers of Frequency Generation:
