Phase Locked Oscillator: SFS0990C-LF
Features Exceptionally Low Phase Noise
Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new Fixed Frequency Synthesizer
model SFS0990C-LF. The SFS0990C-LF
is a preprogrammed synthesizer that is phase locked at 990 MHz to an external 10 MHz reference
oscillator. This PLL features an exceptionally low typical phase noise of -119 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz,
-100 dBc/Hz at 1 kHz, and -141 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offsets.
The RoHS compliant SFS0990C-LF is designed to deliver a typical output power of +1 dBm while
operating off a VCO voltage supply of 5 Vdc and drawing 25 mA (typical) and a phase locked
loop voltage of 3 Vdc while drawing 14 mA (typical). This Fixed Frequency Synthesizer features
a typical 2nd harmonic suppression of -12 dBc and spurious suppression of -70 dBc. It is housed
in Z-COMM's standard PLL-V12C package measuring 0.6 in. x 0.6 in. x 0.22 in. The SFS0990C-LF
is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and is available in tape and reel packaging.
SFS0990C-LF is an excellent choice for basestations, mobile radios, and satellite communication applications
which require quick and simple integration while demanding high performance over the industrial temperature
range of -30 to 85°C.
