AtlanTecRF, a leading global RF and microwave components and equipment manufacturer, announced the launch of its APV Series of Phase Locked Voltage Controlled Oscillators.
These compact oscillator units find application in communication systems as a high quality local oscillator with the ability to lock to a high stability external reference of 10 or 100 MHz.
The fixed output frequency can be in the range from 10 MHz to 32 GHz and is at a minimum level of +13 dBm.
Spectral purity includes harmonics typically better than -30 dBc, spurious at -70 dBc and 10 KHz offset phase noise of -110 dBc/Hz at 175 MHz and -75 dBc/Hz at 25 GHz.
The 2.25 x 2.25 x 0.62 inch oscillators have SMA female RF output and reference input connectors and consume 400 mA of D.C. at +5 V.
In launching the product, the C.E.O. of AtlanTecRF, Geoff Burling, said “Again, AtlanTecRF brings the system design engineer an affordable, high performance Oscillator product in a compact size and with a wide range of applications in mind”.
Each APV Oscillator comes with a TTL lock alarm and there is an option for self-contained operation with an internal reference of +/-0.5 ppm stability over the -10+70 C temperature range.
