Z-Communications Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant Fixed Frequency Synthesizer model SFS3900A-LF in S-band. The SFS3900A-LF is a single frequency synthesizer that operates at 3900 MHz. This synthesizer features a typical phase noise of -88 dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz offset and typical sideband spurs of -65 dBc.
The SFS3900A-LF is designed to deliver a typical output power of 3 dBm with a VCO voltage supply of 5 Vdc while drawing 33 mA (typical) and a phase-locked loop voltage of 3 Vdc while drawing 15 mA (typical) over the temperature range of -40º to 85ºC. This Fixed Frequency Synthesizer features typical 2nd harmonic suppression of -20 dBc and comes in Z-Comm's industry standard PLL-V12N package measuring 0.60 in. x 0.60 in. x 0.13 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements. The SFS3900A-LF is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
SFS3900A-LF is well suited for satellite communication and microwave radio applications that require low phase noise performance.
