High performance fixed frequency PLO uses simple plug and play

26-06-2020 | Z-Communications | Subs & Systems

Z-Communications offers a new RoHS compliant fixed frequency phase-locked loop model SFS9250C-LF operating in the X-band. The device is a simple to use plug and play PLO providing for fast integration. It is intended to deliver a fixed signal at 9250MHz while locked to an external 10MHz reference oscillator. This exceptional PLO features particularly low phase noise of -75dBc/Hz, -92dBc/Hz, and -118dBc/Hz at the 1kHz, 10kHz and 100kHz offsets, respectively.


The device is intended to produce an output power of -3dBm into a 50Ohm load while running off a VCO voltage supply of 5VDC and drawing 90mA and a phase-locked loop voltage of 3VDC while drawing 11mA. This unmatched product offers a typical harmonic suppression of -30dBc and spurious suppression of -70dBc. The device is housed in the company's standard SFS-L1 package measuring 1" x 1" x 0.22". The device is also excellent for automated surface mount assembly and is provided in tape and reel packaging.


The device is a great choice for swift product rollouts and is well suited for radar applications needing operation over the temperature range of -40C to 85C.
