HMC861LP3E Low Noise Programmable Frequency DividerChelmsford, MA, October 20, 2011 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, announces the release of a new low noise programmable frequency divider which is ideal for use in signal generation architectures found in test equipment, laboratory systems and various military applications.

The HMC861LP3E is a Low Noise Programmable Frequency Divider which can be programmed to divide-by-1 or divide-by-3, and accepts input frequencies from 100 MHz to 13 GHz. The HMC861LP3E exhibits extremely low additive phase noise of -152 dBc/Hz in divide-by-1 mode, and -153 dBc/Hz in divide-by-3 mode. This versatile frequency divider accepts input signal levels from -10 to +10 dBm, while delivering +2 dBm of output power. The wide input frequency and power level ranges, and the low single sideband phase noise make the HMC861LP3E ideal for synthesizer and phase locked loop applications in wideband and high data rate communication systems.

HMC861LP3E block diagramThe division ratio of the HMC861LP3E is selected by a single CMOS compatible input and the device is powered from a +5V supply. The HMC861LP3E is the only known MMIC divide-by-3 available in the marketplace which operates to 13 GHz.

The HMC861LP3E is conveniently housed in a miniature 3x3 mm RoHS compliant QFN leadless SMT package and is specified for operation over -40 °C to +85 °C.  Samples and evaluation PC boards for all SMT packaged products are available from stock and can be ordered via the company’s e-commerce site or via direct purchase order. Released data sheets are available on-line at www.hittite.com.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
