Z-Communications Inc. announces a RoHS compliant fixed frequency phase locked loop model RFS5900A-LF in the C-band. The RFS5900A-LF is a fully integrated synthesizer operating at 5900 MHz which is phase locked to a 10 MHz reference with a stability of ±2.5 ppm. This low cost PLL features a typical phase noise of -80 dBc/Hz, -85 dBc/Hz, and -103 dBc/Hz at the 1 kHz, 10 kHz and 100 kHz offsets, respectively.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Qorvo’s RFVC6405 voltage controlled oscillator. The RFVC6405 covers the full 2 to 4 GHz (S-band) in a single device with exceptional performance. Output phase noise is -90 dBc at 10 K offset (typ.) with second harmonic suppression of -15 dBc. With an output power of 0 dBm, the RFVC6405 draws 25 mA from a 5 V supply. Tuning voltage is 0 to 16 Vdc.
Vaunix Technology Corp. will be debuting two test applications, the LDA-203 and the LMS-802DX. The LDA-203 is a digital attenuator with an operating frequency of 1 to 20 GHz. It features a 0 to 63 dB attenuation range and a step size resolution of 0.5 dB. Cost is $1,199. The LMS-802DX is one of a new series of Lab Brick portable signal generators. Covering 2 to 8 GHz it boasts an internal and external pulse modulation width as low as 100 ns and an output power of +10 to -70 dBm.
