Z-Communications has released a new RoHS compliant fixed frequency phase-locked loop model that can enhance any application requiring premium performance while operating in the Ku band region. The SFS14000H-LF is a plug and play PLO providing for quick and simple integration into any system design. It is specified to provide a fixed signal output at 14GHz while locked to an external 100MHz reference oscillator source. This simple to use PLO features excellent low phase noise performance of -93dBc/Hz, -96dBc/Hz and -116dBc/Hz at the 1kHz, 10kHz and 100kHz offsets, respectively.
The device is intended to deliver an output power of -3dBm into a 50Ohm load while running off a VCO voltage supply of 5VDC and drawing 85mA and a phase-locked loop voltage of 3.3VDC while drawing 40mA. This unmatched product provides a typical harmonic suppression of -20dBc and spurious suppression of -65dBc. It is housed in the company’s standard SFS-L1 package measuring 1″ x 1″ x 0.22″. It is also excellent for automated surface mount assembly and is offered in tape and reel packaging.
The device is an excellent option for quick product rollouts and is ideal for radar applications needing operation over the temperature range of -40C to 85C.
