Original Press Release:

High Performance Low Noise Fixed PLO Operating at 13.5GHz

Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant fixed frequency phase locked loop model that is sure to enhance any application needing premium performance while operating in the X-band region. The SFS13500H-LF is a simple to use plug and play PLO allowing for quick and simple integration into any system design. It is specified to produce a fixed signal at 13.5 GHz while locked to an external 100 MHz reference oscillator source. This remarkable PLO features unmatched low phase noise performance of -95dBc/Hz, -97dBc/Hz and -110dBc/Hz at the 1kHz, 10kHz and 100kHz offsets, respectively.

The SFS13500H-LF is designed to deliver an output power of -3 dBm into a 50 ohm load while operating off a VCO voltage supply of 5Vdc and drawing 85mA and a phase locked loop voltage of 3Vdc while drawing 40mA. This unmatched product features a typical harmonic suppression of -20dBc and spurious suppression of -65dBc. It is housed in Z-COMM’s standard SFS-L1 package measuring 1.0 in. x 1.0 in. x 0.22 in. The SFS13500H-LF is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and is available in tape and reel packaging.

The SFS13500H-LF is a great choice for quick product rollouts, and is well suited for satcom and radar applications requiring operation over the temperature range of -40 to 85°C. For further information on this model or any other product from Z-Communications, Inc. please contact our Applications department via email at or call us at 858-621-2700.
