The device offers single stage primary side regulation with a high power factor and low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) along with open and short circuit protection.
5 dBc at 10 MHz for differential signals, and HD2 of better than 90 dBc up to 55 MHz at a large gain of +10 V/V, which reduces in-band harmonic distortion while easing the filtering of out-of-band even order harmonics.
The waveform generators provide the lowest jitter (less than 1 ps jitter, or 200x better than previous generation Direct Digital Synthesis generators) and lowest total harmonic distortion in their class, giving engineers the ability to generate the exact signals they need.
Aerielle Enabled means Simply Better Sound [R] -- unparalleled audio fidelity that produces crisper highs and deeper lows through enhanced noise reduction technology, high-quality stereo separation, and superior total harmonic distortion performance.
Quality is specified in terms of total harmonic distortion (THD) and power factor and the iW3616 and iW3617 easily exceed all requirements, achieving power factor greater than 0.
