New Multiplied Phase Locked Oscillators for Ultra Low Phase Noise Applications
from Spectrum Microwave
May 31, 2012 Press Release
FL — May 31, 2012 — API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) (“API” or the “Company”), a leading provider of
RF/microwave, microelectronics, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, announced
today a new line of multiplied
phase locked oscillators from the Spectrum Microwave family of products.
“The new multiplied phase
locked oscillators provide both ultra low phase noise performance as well as the ability to modify standard
parameters to meet customers’ unique requirements,” said Tracy Shaffer, Vice President, Spectrum Microwave Product
Group of API Technologies. Phase noise performance is -175 dBc/Hz (at 100 kHz offset) and can use its internal or
external 10 MHz reference.
“With an output range of 80 to 1600 MHz, and the flexibility of the passive
multiplier design, these phase locked oscillators can be configured for most military and grounds based
applications,” added Shaffer. Desired output frequency is increased by using a series of x2 multipliers. The
oscillator also delivers excellent spurious performance of -60 dBc when powered by a +12 volt supply. Additional
features include: DC voltage regulation, automatic reference sensing, low current consumption and multiple RF
