Multiplied Phase Locked Oscillators for Ultra Low Phase Noise Applications
API Technologies announced a new line of multiplied phase locked oscillators from the Spectrum Microwave family of products.
“The new multiplied phase locked oscillators provide both ultra low phase noise performance as well as the ability to modify standard parameters to meet customers’ unique requirements,” said Tracy Shaffer, Vice President, Spectrum Microwave Product Group of API Technologies. Phase noise performance is -175 dBc/Hz (at 100 kHz offset) and can use its internal or external 10 MHz reference.
“With an output range of 80 to 1600 MHz, and the flexibility of the passive multiplier design, these phase locked oscillators can be configured for most military and grounds based applications,” added Shaffer. Desired output frequency is increased by using a series of x2 multipliers. The oscillator also delivers excellent spurious performance of -60 dBc when powered by a +12 volt supply. Additional features include: DC voltage regulation, automatic reference sensing, low current consumption and multiple RF outputs.
The Spectrum Microwave product line is one of the world’s leading brands in RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products including filters, frequency sources, components and IMAs. For more information, please visit www.apitech.com/spectrum-microwave.
