STOP SWEEP IN/OUT
low. Retrace does not occur, and the sweep resumes when this input
is pulled high. The open circuit voltage is TTL high and is internally
pulled low when the synthesizer stops its sweep. Externally forcing
this input high will not cause damage or disrupt normal operation.
10 MHz REF INPUT
accepts a 10 MHz 3.~100 Hz, 0 to +lO dBm
reference signal for operation referenced to an external time base.
Nominal input impedance is 50 Q.
10 MHz REF OUTPUT
from the internal frequency standard of the synthesizer. This input
is a 50R connector that can be used as the master clock reference
output for a network of instruments.

externally initiate an analog sweep or to advance to the next point of
a step list or a frequency list.
Produces a 1 ps wide TTL-level pulse at 1601
points evenly spaced across an analog sweep, or at each point in a
step list or a frequency list.
supplies a voltage that is proportional to the RF
output frequency, with a ratio of 0.5 volt output for every 1 GHz of
RF frequency (factory setting). This ratio is switchable to either
0.25 or 1 volt. The switch is located on the Al2 SYTM assembly, see

pulse when the RF output is coincident with a marker frequency.
