USB Interface for PTS Synthesizers

PTS synthesizers are renowned for their quality and low phase noise. With the USB PTS Synthesizer Interface users of these synthesizers can now control them from their PC using the convenient USB connection.  In addition, the USB Interface also turns your PTS into a step/sweep frequency generator.


"I'm a real fan of the PTS synthesizers. It's a very clever design, and extremely built. This project came about after I had acquired several of these units none of which had front panel controls.  I made a few interfaces available at a VHF/UHF Regional conference several years ago and the interst grew. If you have any PTS stories,  projects, or links you'd like to share, please post to the Comments at the bottom of the page.


Be careful when purchasing these units on the surplus market.  Many of the units were custom orders and the modules inside vary widely.  Even with the full PTS model  number it can be hard to tell what you'll get.  (See Reading PTS model numbers on Downloads page.)  I have a fair selection of PTS manuals and circuit diagrams if you need something, feel free to contact to me.  Copyright restrictions prohibit me from posting them on the website.  -W8BL"
