ACST offers a set of THz sources based on the active multiplication chain approach to provide high power signals beyond 100 GHz. These sources can be used as transmitters for single or multi-pixel applications and the current offer goes up to 540 GHz. ACST sources can be divided in high power and full-band sources. Both kind of sources are based on our special high power multipliers using dedicated Schottky diodes technology. ACST high power sources can provide more than 150 mW, 40 mW and 15 mW power at 150 GHz, 300 GHz and 500 GHz. These high power sources offer a bandwith larger than 25 GHz, 50 GHz and 70 GHz respectively. ACST full band sources cover a frequency range going from 40 GHz to 500 GHz with State-of-the-Art output power levels as high as 250 mW, 20 mW, 8 mW and 2 mW in the frequency range of E-band, D-band, WR-3.4 and WR-2.2 respectively. These performances are achieved without any power combining technique placing ACST sources among the most powerful while affordable options in the current THz market. The power handling capabilities of our sources can be increased in a factor of 2 to 4 under customer requirement.

AMC/Sources

ACST Sources represent an Active Multiplier Chain based on high performance Microwave/MM-Wave components, followed by an ACST high-power MM-Wave multiplier. The source is designed and manufactured as a bench top unit to extend the low frequency synthesizer or sweeper without losing all of the functionalities and features. The source is fixed tuned and does not require any adjustment for proper operation. All required voltage biases and current sources are provided by a dedicated power supply unit, which only needs a standard AC power. A TTL modulation port and/or an user-controlled attenuator can be integrated on customer request.
