Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant Fixed Frequency Synthesizer model SFS11800C-LF in the X-band. The SFS11800C-LF is a single frequency synthesizer that operates at 11.8GHz with a 10MHz reference and features a typical phase noise of -90dBc/Hz and -120dBc/Hz at the 10kHz and 100kHz offsets, respectively. The SFS11800C-LF is designed to deliver a typical output power of 3 dBm with a VCO voltage supply of 5 Vdc while drawing 90 mA (typical) and a phase locked loop voltage of 3 Vdc while drawing 11 mA (typical). This Fixed Frequency Synthesizer features a typical 2nd harmonic suppression of -30 dBc and spurious suppression of -70 dBc. It is housed in Z-Comm’s standard SFS-L1 package measuring 1.0 in. x 1.0 in. x 0.22 in. The SFS11800C-LF is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and is available in tape and reel packaging. SFS11800-LF is an excellent choice for radar equipment and satellite communication systems that require extremely low phase noise performance while operating over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C.
