New Pasternack PLO (Phase Lock Oscillator) Components Support External References and Superior Phase Noise Performance Launched
Pasternack has unveiled a new line of phase locked oscillator (PLO) components that deliver accurate and stable output frequencies with low phase noise and spurious performance. These new phase lock oscillator products are ideal for use in radar and other exciter or frequency generation applications. Typical PLO applications include phase locked loops, frequency synthesizers function generators and as a local oscillator source in receiver and transmitter stages.
These new phase locked oscillator models are offered with popular fixed output frequencies of 50MHz, 100MHZ, 500MHZ, 1000MHZ, 2GHz, 4GHz and 6GHz. Typical performance for these PLOs includes excellent phase noise of -105 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset, a buffered output power level of +7 dBm and low second harmonic and spurious suppression levels of -25 dBc and -70 dBc respectively. These phase lock oscillators require an external frequency reference of either 10 MHz or 100 MHz and feature a TTL lock detect output to signal an out-of-lock condition.
Pasternack phase locked oscillator models are RoHS compliant and operate over the full temperature range of -30°C to +70°C. They require a single positive DC voltage supply are available in either SMA-connectorized or compact surface mount or packages. SMA-connectorized packages are nickel-plated with DC bias and signal pins and an integrated mounting baseplate. Surface mount packages feature gold over nickel mounting surfaces with downloadable Gerber file software for the mounting footprint.
These PLOs are built to be rugged and withstand stringent MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for shock and vibration. Not only are these phase locked oscillator products released, they are in-stock at Pasternack.
