PLL/Synthesizer covers 1-5 GHz bands.

Press Release Summary:

Requiring external frequency reference and supply voltages for internal phase lock loop and VCO, Model CPLL66 is programmed using standard 3-line interface. Typical phase noise at 4 GHz is -90 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset with 0 dBm minimum output power. Housed in 0.6 x 0.6 x 0.15 in. SMD package, Model CPLL66 is suited for digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, base stations, portable radios, and test instruments.

Crystek Launches New CPLL66 PLL/Synthesizer Line In Space-Saving Package

Fort Myers, FL, August 2005 - Crystek Corporation announces its entrance into the PLL/Synthesizer arena with the introduction of its CPLL66 family. The CPLL66 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 is programmed using a standard three line interface (Data, Clock and Load Enable).

"The development of the CPLL66 was a natural progression to compliment our already extensive line of VCOs," said Ramon Cerda, Crystek's director of engineering. "We've successfully wrapped 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 newly introduced CPLL66 family has been initially released to cover 1GHz to 5GHz in bands. It is housed in a compact 0.6-in. x 0.6-in. x 0.15-in. SMD package which saves board space. Typical phase noise at 4GHz is -90dBc/Hz at 10KHz offset with 0dBm minimum output power.

Applications include digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, base stations, personal communications systems, portable radios and test instruments.

The Crystek CPLL66 PLL/Synthesizer is priced starting at $35 ea. in volume, depending on specification. For additional pricing details, contact Crystek Crystals Corp. A large selection of Crystek's High Performance product line is available directly from Mouser Electronics (
