Special Applications: CS-SSB

The ModBox-CS-SSB is a tunable frequency shifter based on a lithium niobate IQ Modulator. This system generates single sideband carrier suppress spectrum in the 1-18 GHz range. The peak- power of the shifted harmonic is 35 dB larger than the other spectral components and may reach values larger than 60 dB. The modulation frequency (1-18 GHz) directly sets the Single Side Band position, allowing for a virtually zero frequency resolution.
