Fixed Frequency Synthesizer: SFS11800C-LF Features Ultra Low Phase Noise
Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant Fixed Frequency Synthesizer model
SFS11800C-LF in the
X-band. The SFS11800C-LF is a single frequency synthesizer that operates at 11.8 GHz with
a 10 MHz reference and features a typical phase noise of -90 dBc/Hz and -120 dBc/Hz
at the 10 kHz and 100 kHz offsets, respectively. The SFS11800C-LF is designed to deliver
a typical output power of 3 dBm with a VCO voltage supply of 5 Vdc while drawing 90 mA
(typical) and a phase locked loop voltage of 3 Vdc while drawing 11 mA (typical). This Fixed Frequency
Synthesizer features a typical 2nd harmonic suppression of -30 dBc and spurious suppression
of -70 dBc. It is housed in Z-Comm's standard SFS-L1 package measuring 1.0 in. x 1.0 in.
x 0.22 in. The SFS11800C-LF is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and is available
in tape and reel packaging. SFS11800-LF is an excellent choice for radar equipment and satellite
communication systems that require extremely low phase noise performance while operating over
the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C.
