The superior performance of ClockMatrix devices makes them ideal for a broad range of networking, broadcast video, optical transport network (OTN) and industrial automation systems that require critical timing performance for clock generation, frequency translation
, jitter attenuation and phase alignment.
First, the problem of the direct Tx-to-Rx leakage through antennas or isolators can be solved due to frequency translation
, removing the serious drawback of the AMCW radar system.
If X(f) denote the Fourier transform of x(t), then x(t)exp(j2pf0t) denote the Fourier transform ofX f f0 using frequency translation
The phase quadrature double-sideband frequency translation
technique has been proposed to transport MIMO radio signals over single optical fiber .
The devices' high level of integration and low jitter eliminates the need for separate frequency translation
, redundancy management, and jitter attenuation devices empowering system designers to save cost and board area by consolidating those functions into a single device.
In radio frequency (RF) receivers, mixers are important components which provide the frequency translation
from RF signals to the intermediate frequency (IF) signals called "down-convert".
Then, after frequency translation
and decimation, the data is stored as complex I&Q samples to the digitizer's memory.
It is used for frequency translation
with the voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) [1-3] and designed to be controllable to synthesize the desired output frequencies  or synchronize the clock signals [5,6].
The main goal of the mixer stage is to obtain the needed frequency translation
of the input signal.
Applications for the CVS575S-500, according to the Fort Myers, FL-based frequency control parts manufacturer, include frequency translation
, test and measurement, and others.
These VCOs have much reduced AM noise levels at the cost of increased harmonic levels and increased phase noise due to frequency translation
. In this case, the measurement can be called a 'phase noise' measurement.
