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 ...

Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant fixed frequency phase locked loop model RFS5900A-LF in the C-band. The RFS5900A-LF is a fully integrated synthesizer operating at 5900 MHz which is phase locked to a 10 MHz reference with a stability of ±2.5 ppm. This low cost PLL features a typical phase noise of -80 dBc/Hz, -85 dBc/Hz, and -103 dBc/Hz at the 1 kHz, 10 kHz and 100 kHz offsets, respectively.
The RFS5900A-LF is designed to deliver an output power of 3۬±2 dBm while operating off a VCO voltage supply of 5Vdc and drawing 35 mA and a phase locked loop voltage of 3 Vdc while drawing 15 mA. This unmatched product features a 2nd harmonic suppression of -25 dBc and spurious suppression of -65 dBc. It is housed in Z-COMM's standard PLL-V12N package measuring 0.6 in. x 0.6 in. x 0.13 in. The RFS5900A-LF is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and is available in tape and reel packaging.
The RFS5900A-LF allows for simple design implementation making it a great choice for quick product rollouts, and is well suited for satellite communications and radar applications requiring operation over the temperature range of -30 to 70 °C.
