Wideband RF synthesizer / PLL can reduce system overall costs

10-06-2015 | Digikey | Semiconductors

Now available from Digi-Key, IDT's 8V97051 wideband RF synthesizer / PLL with integrated voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) offers a combination of high-performance, low power consumption and wide-tuning range. The device features an integrated VCO with a large tuning range capable of providing multi-band local oscillator (LO) frequency synthesis, limiting the need for multiple narrow-band RF synthesizers. This reduces the bill of materials and the design complexity, lowering the cost of developing radio frequency products.
