Phase-Locked Voltage Controlled Oscillator (Model: PLVCO)

Features

  • Output frequencies from 10 MHz to 32 GHz

  • Low phase noise & spurious

  • Harmonics (typ.) -30 dBc

  • Internal (0.5PPM) or external reference frequency

  • Low power +5.5V operation

  • Small size (2.25" x 2.25" x 0.62")

  • Lowest cost X-Band PLO

 

 

Description

The model PLVCO is a single PLL design that locks a voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) to either an external or internal reference.  Due to the availability of VCO's at a low cost this is a very simple way to realize a desired frequency. The performance is suitable for many applications and is the lowest cost PLO architecture we have available
