Have you ever been using a piece of test equipment and needed to go above or below the end of its range?
Ever wonder why the limit was a brick wall and you couldn’t get a few extra megacycles beyond?
Fortunately you don't have to wonder if you are using one of our Valon 5009 Dual Frequency Synthesizer modules.
The Valon 5009 is guaranteed to go to 6 GHz. But in an emergency you can go a bit beyond, actually quite a bit beyond. The 5009 has an undocumented command that we use for testing that enables us to see how much margin is available to the tuning range of our VCOs. You can use it too. Just type the command “debugflag 1001” and the 5009 will ignore the preset frequency limits. In most cases you will be able to go beyond 6.2 GHz on the high end and approximately 1 MHz lower than 23.5 MHz on the bottom end.
Remember, you’re operating out of range so don’t call us if you can’t get to 8GHz using this special command. We just thought you might like to know it was there.
