Paper Abstract

Waveform sampling of the positive ECL signals generated from microwave frequency divider by using a delay-line-free electro-optic sampling system with a voltage-controlled phase-tuning circuit is primarily reported. The distorted waveform of the ECL signal frequency-prescaled from microwave oscillator operated at high output level is sampled and compared by using the proposed technique and the conventional sampling oscilloscope. The divisor of the frequency prescalar is found to vary from 2 to 5 at input power of less than 114dBm.
