VF Series Multi Channel Synthesizer Modules

VF Series Multi Channel Synthesizer

Accommodates up to 16 Channels and a Wide Range of Frequencies
Performance

Comdel's VF series multi channel synthesizer modules provide phase adjustable output to avoid destructive arcing and cross-talk in multiple cathode plasma processing chambers. The VF series can accommodate up to 16 channels and may be programmed to any frequency between 2 and 60 MHz. Frequency changes are simultaneous and phase continuous. The phase of each channel can be adjusted to an accuracy greater than 0.1 degree resolution. The VF series allows adjustment for cable length dependencies.
