Rugged Frequency Synthesizers

A new series of rugged frequency synthesizers designed for high capacity MW and MMW digital radios up to 18 GHz. With an emphasis on Guaranteed Zero Phase Hits™, the DFS Series offers extremely low microphonics and wide operating temperature range. These low noise sources meet the needs of high-speed data transmissions utilizing up to 256 QAM.

DC power consumption below 4 watts is maintained by utilizing low power components resulting in low junction temperatures and overall high reliability. The series features tuning bandwidths up to 1000 MHz and step sizes from 0.125 to 10 MHz.

Additional Specifications
•Frequency Range: 0.5-23 GHz
•Switching Speed: < 25 ms
•Phase noise meets 16, 32, 128 & 256 QAM requirements
•output Power Range: 12-18 dBm
•Load VSWR 1.5:1

Microwave Frequency Synthesizers

This new line of low-power, compact frequency synthesizers employs a single module design implemented with CMOS, ASIC, advanced RF MMIC and a dedicated microcomputer. A Ku-band synthesizer with 1 KHz step, 2.2 GHz bandwidth and integrated L-band. LFLO consumers only 8 watts — a 65% savings compared to competing units.

Low profile construction (only 73 high) and very low phase noise makes the MFS Series ideal for applications in Satcom converters (L, X, C, Ku, and Ka bands), Digital Radios (C, X, and Ku Bands), Instrumentation and Wireless Communications.

The MFS Series of synthesizers meet, with large safety margins, the requirements of IESS, Eutelsat, and MIL-STD-I88 for fixed and mobile satcom ground stations.

Additional Specifications
•Output Frequency: 1-23 GHz
•Frequency Bandwidth:
1 GHz at L-Band
1.2 GHz at C-Band
2.25 GHz at Ku-Band
•Phase Noise 20 dB Better than IESS
•Step Size: 1 KHz or 125 KHz
•Switching Speed: 50 ms
•Power Output: 12-16 dBm
•Load VSWR: 2.0:1 •In-Band Spurious: -70 dBc
•Out-of-Band Spurious: -82 dBc
•Fixed L-Band Output:
Frequency Range: 0.5 to 30. GHz
Power Output: 12 dBm ± 2 dBm
Spurious: -95 dBc

Phase Locked Oscillators

The PDRO series of oscillators employs a unique technique to phase lock microwave DRO's to a 5 or 10 MHz crystal reference. Several models in the series require only a single loop for reliable phase-lock performance. By utilizing just one lop, size and power consumption are minimized and multiple frequencies can be realized from the same reference. The low profile and small size (2.5 inches× 3.5 inches× 0.65 inches× ) features ultra low phase noise and low DC power consumption with a ruggedized design and wide operating temperature range. Frequency ranges from 0.5 to 18 GHz.

Additional Specifications
•Fractional Reference Multiplicator
•-100 dBc Spurious
•Meets MIL-STD-I88 & IESS 308
•Integrated Reference Optional (Same Package)

Miniature Phase Locked Oscillators

Elcom technologies miniature MPDRO sources employ a unique technology to phase-lock microwave DRO to a 5 to 100 MHz crystal reference. The technique requires only a single loop for reliable phase-lock performance. By using just one loop, size, power consumption and cost are minimized.

Additional Specifications for the MPDRO Series
ג.5 to 26 GHz Operation
•Single Loop, locks to 5 to 100 Mhz Reference
•Ultra Low Phase Noise
•Integrated Buffer Amplifier
•-100 dBc Spurious
•Wide Operating Temperature Range
•Low DC Power Consumption
•Small 2.25× 1.4 inches× 0.8 inches Size
•Meets MIL-STD-I88 and IESS 308

Both the PDRO and MPDRO series of Phase Locked Oscillators are ideal for applications in Satcom converters, Digital radios and Instrumentation. In addition, the MPDRO series has applications as a fiber optic clock generator.
