RF Modules

Wenzel Associates’ Blue Tops RF Modules are RF system building blocks with verified state-of-the-art phase noise performance and exceptionally low harmonic and spurious content. These modules enable RF systems designers to quickly configure frequency generating systems with low noise outputs to 16 GHz. Each module contains all the components required to achieve a given function integrated into a single, compact aluminum case. The Blue Tops Series includes amplifier, multiplier, divider and phase lock loop modules, mixers, filters, splitters and power level detectors, most with fast deliveries and low cost.
