Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant fixed frequency phase locked loop model SFS9280C-LF operating in the X-band. The SFS9280C-LF is a plug and play PLO allowing for quick integration and designed to produce a fixed signal at 9280MHz when utilized with an external 10MHz reference oscillator. This simple to use PLO features a typical phase noise of -80dBc/Hz, -100dBc/Hz, and -120dBc/Hz at the 1kHz, 10kHz and 100kHz offsets, respectively.
The SFS9280C-LF is designed to deliver an output power of 0۬±3dBm while operating off a VCO voltage supply of 5Vdc and drawing 90mA and a phase locked loop voltage of 3Vdc while drawing 11mA. This unmatched product features a typical harmonic suppression of -30dBc and spurious suppression of -65dBc. It is housed in Z-COMM’s standard SFS-L1B package measuring 1.0 in. x 1.0 in. x 0.22 in. The SFS9280C-LF is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and is available in tape and reel packaging.
The SFS9280C-LF is a great choice for quick product rollouts, and is well suited for satellite communications and radar applications requiring operation over the temperature range of -40 to 85°C.
