Multiplied phase locked oscillators deliver low phase noise

June 01, 2012 // By Julien Happich
API Technologies announced a line of multiplied phase locked oscillators offering a phase noise performance of -175 dBc/Hz (at 100 kHz offset).

The device can use an internal or external 10 MHz reference. With an output range of 80 to 1600 MHz, and the flexibility of the passive multiplier design, these phase locked oscillators can be configured for most military and grounds based applications.

Desired output frequency is increased by using a series of x2 multipliers. The oscillator also delivers excellent spurious performance of -60 dBc when powered by a +12-V supply.

Additional features include: DC voltage regulation, automatic reference sensing, low current consumption and multiple RF outputs.
