EM Research announced it will feature the SLX and LX Series of miniature frequency synthesizers that are custom‐designed to utilize 3 or 3.3 V inputs to meet the stringent low power consumption requirements of short range and battery powered wireless systems. The SLX and LX units feature extremely low power consumption (900 MHz, +3 V at 15 mA, typical) and typical power outputs of ‐5 dBm (up to +7 dBm, optional). The units also feature low spurious, low harmonics and exceptionally low phase noise. Available with operating temperature ranges of ‐40° to +85°C, the units are designed as cost‐effective, surface‐mount packages and can be fixed‐frequency or programmable in bands from 50 MHz to 6 GHz, with extremely low phase noise (


Typical applications include: Wireless receivers and transmitters, RF transceivers, WLAN, CATV, DA/AD converters, base stations, ISM band, short range devices, wireless sensors, automatic meter‐reading and other battery powered wireless systems.
