The FSFS series of surface-mount fast settling synthesizers from Synergy Microwave Corporation are ideal for frequency hopping and jamming applications.
The FSFS315555-500 is the first model released in the series providing under 50 uSec of settling time when commanded for start/stop and stop/start frequency jumps. The synthesizer tunes in 5 MHz steps within the tuning band of 3150 – 5550 MHz, having spurious rejection of 75 dBc typical. The phase noise is -80 dBc/Hz up to 100 KHz and –100 dBc/Hz at 1 MHz offset from the carrier.
This synthesizer requires +5 and +15 volts DC for operation and is packaged in a small surface-mount RoHS compliant package, measuring 1.25x1.0x0.3 inches (LxWxH).
