PLL Synthesizer combines VCO and PLL in one compact package.

Press Release Summary:

Operating from 2,416-2,553 MHz with typical step size of 100 kHz, CPLL66-2416-2553 is housed in compact 0.6 x 0.6 x 0.15 in. SMD package. It needs only external frequency reference and supply voltages for internal PLL and VCO and is programmed using standard 3 line interface (data, clock, and load enable). Phase noise is -90 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset with minimum output power of 3 dBm, VCO voltage is 5 Vdc, PLL voltage is 3 Vdc, and second harmonic suppression is -15 dBc typical.

Original Press Release:

New 2416-2553 MHz PLL/Synthesizer from Crystek Corporation

Fort Myers, FL - July 16, 2009 - Crystek's CPLL66-2416-2553 PLL/Synthesizer operates from 2416 MHz to 2553 MHz with a typical Step Size of 100 KHz. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the model CPLL66-2416-2553 is housed in a compact 0.6-in. x 0.6-in. x 0.15-in. SMD package, which saves board space.

Crystek's PLL/Synthesizer construction essentially wraps a VCO around a PLL in a package that's only marginally larger than a VCO on its own, and significantly smaller than separate VCO/PLL modules. The CPLL66-2416-2553 is a complete PLL/Synthesizer needing only an external frequency reference and supply voltages for the internal PLL (phase lock loop) and VCO (voltage controlled oscillator). The Crystek CPLL66-2416-2553 is programmed using a standard three line interface (Data, Clock and Load Enable).

Typical phase noise for the CPLL66-2416-2553 is -90 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset with minimum output power of 3 dBm. VCO voltage is 5 Vdc; PLL voltage is 3 Vdc. Second harmonic suppression is -15 dBc typical.

The CPLL66-2416-2553 is ideal for use in telecommunications, computers, radio equipment, base stations and other electronic applications. For pricing details, contact Crystek Corporation.
