January 17, 2011
SAN DIEGO, September 10, 2007: Z-Communications, Inc. proudly announces the release of PSA1450F-LF, the first of a new series of state-of-the-art, fast switching and wide band Fractional-N PLL Synthesizers in a small surface mount package (0.8”x0.6”). These new high performance synthesizers from Z-Communications, Inc., use the latest technology. This cutting-edge design scheme enables the achievement of very low spurious levels as low as 80dBc. The PSA1450F-LF provides excellent phase noise with 90dBc/ Hz @ 1kHz offset and 100dBc/ Hz @ 10kHz offset when operated with a low phase noise reference of 32MHz. Above all, it has a switching speed of < 6ųS for a 40MHz frequency hop. The PSA1450F-LF operates with a DC voltage of 5/15V, Icc 20/40 mA and delivers high and flat output power of 6 ±2dBm over 800MHz band. It has an operating temperature range of 0 to 70°C. In short, the PSA1450F-LF provides the best combination of performance for synthesizers of its class available today and it’s the ideal choice for high performance wireless systems.
