Multi-Function Modules​​​

Integrated RF Head Asse​mbly

​Teledyne Lincoln Microwave has seen a growing demand from customers to supply integrated assemblies which afford the functionality normally delivered by multiple discr​eet components.
The reasons for transitioning to an integrated approach can be summarized as:

  • Offer greater flexibility to optimize​ interfaces.
  • Each element is designed with its preceding and following components in mind.
  • Reduce supply chain management commitments
  • Reduce size, weight and power
  • Reduce interconnects 
  • Standardized power supplies
  • ITAR Free

Buyers may have concerns that the required design effort may be excessive or the breadth of expertise too wide. The preference may be to sacrifice performance for spreading risk. The solution is a collaboration with Teledyne Lincoln Microwave. Teledyne has the necessary mass to deliver projects, small and large, with expertise covering every aspect of your transmitter and receiver and a pedigree reaching back 70 years.​

Mixed Signal Cont​roller for Real-Time Quantum Sensor Measurements 

Leveraging from our defense know-how, we partnered with a UK university to equip them with a modular, scalable real-time mixed signal control-system for their quantum sensor measurements. Suitable for quantum clocks and quantum gravity measurements, in each case the task of powering, controlling and stimulating the quantum sensor is complex. Precise timing of multiple events and adjusting behavior in real-time based on observed reactions is essential. 

Our solution accommodates their current needs and is upgradeable for the future. It consists of rack-mount modules supplying many channels of microwave waveforms used to modulate and control lasers, power for magneto-optical traps (MOTs), channels of thermal measurement and many logic signals. At the center of the system is a real-time FPGA-based controller with very low latency and precisely characterized propagation delays. High level programming and non-time critical instructions are provided by a PC.
