A novel frequency-tripled binary phase-coded microwave signal generation approach using a quadrature phase shift-keying modulator is proposed and demonstrated. A 9.99 GHz or 15.9 GHz phase-coded microwave signal is generated using a 3.33 GHz or 5.3 GHz reference signal. The phase recovery and pulse compression performance is also evaluated.
