Z-Communications, Inc. Press Release 10-2-2008

Z-Comm Introduces the SFS3263A-LF Fixed Frequency Synthesizer

SFS3263A-LF S-Band Synthesizer Features Low Phase Noise

Z-Communications, Inc.SFS3263A-LF synthesizerSAN DIEGO, October 2, 2008: Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant Fixed Frequency Synthesizer model SFS3263A-LF in S-band. The SFS3263A-LF is a single frequency synthesizer that operates at 3263.31 MHz. This Synthesizer features a typical phase noise of -95 dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz offset and a typical sideband spurs of -70 dBc.

The SFS3263A-LF is designed to deliver a typical output power of 9 dBm with a VCO voltage supply of 5 Vdc while drawing 33 mA (typical) over the temperature range of -40º to 85º C and phase locked loop typical voltage of 3 Vdc and typical phase locked loop current of 13 mA.. This Fixed Frequency Synthesizer features typical 2nd harmonic suppression of -10 dBc and comes in Z-Comm's industry standard PLL-V12N package with low shield measuring 0.60 in. x 0.60 in. x 0.13 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements. The SFS3263A-LF is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.

Z-Comm SFS3263A-LFSFS3263A-LF is well suited for fixed wireless applications that require low phase noise performance. Additional specifications for this product can be found on-line at
