Pasternack's new line of Frequency Divider modules covers broadband frequencies from 0.1 GHz to 20 GHz. A comprehensive selection of 28 different models are offered in a variety of fixed divide-by-ratios from 2 to 40. These prescalers are ideal for use in phase locked loop (PLL) and frequency synthesizer circuit designs, as well as test instrumentation. Applications may involve use in aerospace and defense, satellite communications, VSAT, test and measurement equipment, and point-to-point radios.
Designs are available in compact and rugged SMA connectorized packages. Circuit assemblies feature advanced GaAs HBT MMIC semiconductor technology that produces low additive SSB phase noise performance, with typical levels down to -155 dBc/Hz at 100 KHz offset. Input power ranges from -20 to +15 dBm, with output power ranges from -6 to +5 dBm depending on the model.
