Pasternack USB Controlled PLL (Phase Locked Loop) Synthesizer Now Available for Same Day Shipping
Phase Locked Loop (PLL) synthesizer with USB control product line has been announced by Pasternack. PLL synthesizer line from Pasternack offers high levels of frequency stability and accuracy with exceptional phase noise characteristics that allows components in the signal chain to perform at their optimum levels. These new RF microwave phase lock loop synthesizers can be useful in applications involving signal generators, bench-top test and measurement, electronic warfare, and microwave radios.
Pasternack’s six new PLL frequency synthesizers cover a broad range of frequency bands from 25 MHz to 27 GHz. The compact and rugged SMA-connectorized phase locked loop synthesizer designs support a USB 2.0 controlled interface with a PC computer that supplies DC power and GUI command control. Models offer high output power levels that range from +10 dBm to +19 dBm typical, and output attenuation is adjustable up to 50 dB in 1 dB steps. Phase locked speed of these PLL synthesizers is 1 msec typical and phase noise is as low as -108 dBc/Hz at 100 MHz offset.
Additional features of the Pasternack PLL frequency synthesizer components include a 50 MHz internal frequency source and optional external reference with supplied cable. Frequency resolution can be adjusted using either Integer (default) or fractional modes with resolution to a step size down to 1 MHz. Phase lock loop synthesizer modules support functional LED indicators that confirm a USB connection, phase locking and unlocking, and RF power disable. All RF synthesizer models are RoHS and Reach compliant and are classified as EAR99. A comprehensive user manual and VISA compliant software package can be downloaded from the Pasternack website.
