UHF-MF Functional Diagram
The UHF-MF option, in combination with a Zurich Instruments UHF Instrument, provides the capability to analyze a signal at 8 arbitrary frequencies simultaneously. The independent configuration for each demodulator allows the choice between the harmonic frequency of another demodulator or arbitrary frequency analysis. This feature aims at replacing a stack of lock-in amplifiers resulting in a simpler laboratory setup and reduced cost. Today the multi-frequency option is a unique capability provided by Zurich Instruments not matched by any competing instrument.
This option includes 6 additional oscillators and the Oscillator Selector, giving the flexibility to connect any oscillator to any demodulator. With the Output Adder, UHF-MF enables free linear combination of all 8 sinusoid signals on the two Signal Outputs. Without the option, oscillator 1 (2) is permanently wired to demodulators 1-4 (5-8), and each Signal Output can generate a single oscillator signal or a single harmonic.
