Designed as a high performance LO for RADAR Digital Signal Processor

Reno, Nevada, June 16th, 2016

EM Research HFS-12000-XA - RF CafeThe HFS-12000-XA is a 7000 to 12000 MHz surface-mount frequency synthesizer designed as a high performance down-converter LO for RADAR Digital Signal Processors. The design also features low phase noise (<-90 dBc/Hz @ 100 KHz offset) and fast switching capability (<750 μSec, Band-Edge to Band-Edge) critical for signals intelligence applications.

The HFS-12000-XA also locks to a 100 MHz reference and contains a channel step size of 1 MHz or 10 MHz (depending on customer preference), +10 dBm power output, <-60 dBc spurs, <17 dBc harmonics, dual supply (+5V and +12V) and relatively lower current draw of <200 mA, all housed in a small, surface-mount package (1.25" x 1" x 0.24"). This feature rich design operates over the temperature range -30°C to +70°C with extended temperatures available. Optional vibration and shock mitigation is also available for operation in harsh airborne, ground, or sea based environments.

The HFS-12000-XA introduces a new broadband architecture to the company's HFS Series product line and offers capabilities previously not available in the market. The growing demands of the signals intelligence market require wider bandwidths and better performance in small, compact packages, particularly for airborne RADAR applications. The HFS-12000-XA design marks another example of EM Research's ability to deliver leading edge technologies for customer's most demanding requirements.

Kirt Blattenberger,

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 ...
