March 15, 2013 Press Release
PMI Model No. PIA-12D8G-CD-1 is a Phase Locked, Dielectric Resonator Oscillator with Internal
Reference having an output frequency of 12.8 GHz. This model provides a minimum output
of +13 dBm with all spurs held to -80 dBc and harmonics held to -25 dBc. The
frequency stability is ±3 ppm with an internal reference of 100 MHz. The phase noise is
as follows: -34dBc/Hz at 1Hz, -65 dBc/Hz at 10 Hz, -85 dBc at 100 Hz, -108 dBc/Hz
at 1kHz, -115dBc/Hz at 10kHz, -120dBc/Hz at 100 kHz, and -140 dBc/Hz at 1MHz offsets.
The oscillator requires +15 VDC and 300 mA. There is a built in alarm which outputs
a TTL signal when phase locked. The unit measures 2.25" x 2.25" x 0.62". Other frequency
ranges are available.
