In most cases, yes you can. That is why we make them. In years of working in the industry, I’ve seen time after time, high-
In many applications you may want to embed a simple signal source into your test cabinet or piece of equipment. A Valon synthesizer occupies very little space and needs only a source of low voltage dc. Valon synthesizers don’t have a “front-
We don’t want you to and neither should you. USB power is can vary widely depending on the computer providing it. The voltage is not high enough either. Output internal buffer amplifiers require 5V to provide a consistent and low noise RF output signal. Because we only use high-
Furthermore, not having to rely on USB power lets you disconnect the computer from the synthesizer once you have set the way you want. Once programmed, the synthesizer can power up to the saved settings and not have to be reprogrammed from the computer.
Yes and yes. All of our products are well regulated with low-
Some of you might have noticed that we now call for 6Vdc input to our synthesizers. If you're using 5Vdc input an you're happy with your performance than you can keep on using 5V. We now recommend 6Vdc because a lot 5V sources (wall-
Can I use a switching power supply?
Yes of course. All of our products have plenty of filtering and regulation and unless your switcher is unusually dirty it should be just fine. Just be sure the supply never dips below 5.5Vdc.
All of our products are reverse voltage protected. We take special care in the design of our products to ensure that no damage will occur if you (not saying it’s you) hook it up backwards.
