EM Research to Demonstrate High Performance, Fixed-frequency Synthesizer

June 16, 2008

EM Research's CLX series is a ceramic resonator-based oscillator with exceptionally low phase noise, -110 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset.

The CLX series is an internally-programmed fixed-frequency unit in a small, 0.75" x 0.75" SMT package. Optimized loop performance for overall low RMS noise. Available in custom fixed-frequencies from 200 MHz to 4 GHz. External frequency references from 5 to 250 MHz. Buffered outputs up to +13 dBm. Optional RoHS compliance.

Applications include: DRO replacement, fixed LO for up/down converters, SAW replacement-based PLL and microwave point-to-point radios.
