Reno, Nevada -- March 30, 2010 -- The
SLX-4000 is a miniature broadband frequency synthesizer for battery powered military systems and devices. The
unit operates from 2000 to 4000 MHz locked to a 10 MHz external reference and features 5 MHz step size. The unit
features +4 dBm output power, low spurs (<-60 dBc), low noise, extremely low current draw (+5 V @ 60 mA, typical)
and extended operating temperature range (-40°C to +85°C). Fast switching units are also available. The SLX Series
is housed in an ultra-miniature 0.5” square package.
Custom frequencies available in bandwidths up to an octave.
