-- Phase Lock Loop Synthesizer: PCA0495B-LF Features
Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant
Phase Lock Loop Synthesizer
model PCA0495B-LF for satellite modem equipment. The PCA0495B-LF is a low powered frequency
synthesizer that operates from 470 to 520 MHz with a 100 kHz step size in a package measuring
only 0.50 in. x 0.50 in. x 0.13 in. This miniature PLL provides phase noise of -97 dBc/Hz @
10 kHz offset and can be quickly and easily programmed through a 3-wire serial interface.
The PCA0495B-LF is designed to deliver a typical output power of 4 dBm into a 50 Ω load
while operating off a single supply voltage of 3.3 Vdc and typically only consuming 25 mA of
current. This high performance PLL spurious and 2nd harmonic suppression is -65 and -10 dBc,
respectively, and is designed to operate over the industrial temperature of -40 to 85ºC. The
PCA0495B-LF is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements making it ideal
for automated surface mount assembly and reflow. The PCA0495B-LF is also well suited for land
mobile radios or any other UHF application.
