Teardown of an HP 8671A Microwave Frequency Synthesizer

I recently bought an HP 8671A microwave frequency synthesizer on eBay. This synthesizer can generate signals from 2GHz to 6.2GHz with an unleveled output of more than 8dBm. It is a nice complement to my HP 8642B signal generator and Wavetek 907 signal generator. Using these generators, I can now generate signals of pretty much any frequencies under the 12GHz range. A video of this teardown is linked towards the end of this post. Continue reading ‘Teardown of an HP 8671A Microwave Frequency Synthesizer’ »

Teardown of an 8-10 GHz RF Isolator

I did a teardown video of a microwave range (8-10 GHz) RF isolator last week. As a follow up, I will post some of the high-resolution pictures I took during the process here (click to see larger images). Continue reading ‘Teardown of an 8-10 GHz RF Isolator’ »

Wavetek 907 Signal Generator Teardown

Since I just got myself an HP 5350B microwave counter and I had fixed it up, I thought it would be great if I could get a SHF generator to test out the counter in the microwave range. So when I saw a super cheap Wavetek 907 for sale on eBay, I simply could not pass it up. Continue reading ‘Wavetek 907 Signal Generator Teardown’ »
