Fixed Frequency Synthesizer: SFS1520C-LF Low Noise PLO for Satellite Communications
April 2, 2019 - Z-Communications, Inc., announces
a new RoHS compliant fixed frequency phase locked loop model SFS1520C-LF
operating in the L-band. The SFS1520C-LF is a plug and play PLO allowing for quick
integration and designed to produce a fixed signal at 1520 MHz when utilized
with an external 10 MHz reference oscillator. This simple to use PLO features a
typical low phase noise performance of −100 dBc/Hz, −110 dBc/Hz, and −133 dBc/Hz
at the 1 kHz, 10 kHz and 100 kHz offsets, respectively.
The SFS1520C-LF is designed to deliver a nominal
output power of +3 dBm while operating off a VCO voltage supply of 5 Vdc
and drawing 28 mA and a phase locked loop voltage of 3 Vdc while drawing
10 mA. This unmatched product features a typical harmonic suppression of −20 dBc
and spurious suppression of −65 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 SFS1520C-LF is
also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and is available in tape and reel
The SFS1520C-LF is a great choice for quick product rollouts, and is well suited
for satellite communications and test instrumentation requiring operation over the
temperature range of -40 to 85°C.
