RF Synthesizers

Harris has been a pioneer in the design and manufacture of high performance, digitally-based radio frequency (RF) solutions for more than twenty-five years. Our core competency is in wideband, low spurious and fast frequency switching synthesizer solutions. Our dedication to pushing the boundaries of RF and digital integration has led to the development of the most sophisticated Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS)-based RF synthesizers available today. This history of innovation has led to a broad customer base featuring leaders in military radar, aerospace, EW, and communication systems as a manufacturer of high end custom products. Our group is a registered Quality Management System manufacturer (ISO-9001:2000) with the latest software, hardware and test equipment necessary for high performance RF design and manufacturing.
