RFPRO Pocket Reference Oscillator Integrates Sinewave SAW Oscillator in SMA Housing
Tue, 08/11/2009 - 12:53pm
Crystek introduces the new RF Pocket Reference Oscillator (RFPRO Series), the industry's first frequency control product to integrate a complete True SineWave SAW (surface acoustic wave) oscillator in a rugged SMA housing. Connecting the RFPRO Series' female SMA side to +3.3 Vdc will output a clean -135 dBc/Hz phase noise signal at 10 kHz offset. In effect, each RFPRO is a fixed-frequency portable signal generator. Crystek's RFPRO Series oscillator offers frequency stability of ±150 ppm over -20°C to 70°C (operating temperature range rated at -40° to 85°C; storage -45° to 90°C). RFPRO Series oscillators are available off-the-shelf in 500 MHz and 1 GHz frequencies output. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the RFPRO Series of oscillators is well suited for laboratory and test instrument use.
