AtlanTecRF, a leading global RF and microwave components and equipment manufacturer, today announced the launch of its APV Series of Phase Locked Voltage Controlled Oscillators.
These compact Oscillator units find application in communication systems as a high quality local Oscillator with the ability to lock to a high stability external reference of 10MHz or 100MHz.
The fixed output frequency can be in the range from 10MHz to 32GHz and is at a minimum level of +13dBm.
Spectral purity includes harmonics typically better than -30dBc, spurious at -70dBc and 10KHz offset phase noise of -110dBc/Hz at 175MHz and -75dBc/Hz at 25GHz.
The 2.25 x 2.25 x 0.62 inch Oscillators have SMA female RF output and reference input connectors and consume 400mA of D.C. at +5V.
In launching the product, the C.E.O. of AtlanTecRF, Geoff Burling, said “Again, AtlanTecRF brings the system design engineer an affordable, high performance Oscillator product in a compact size and with a wide range of applications in mind”.
Each APV Oscillator comes with a TTL lock alarm and there is an option for self-contained operation with an internal reference of +/-0.5ppm stability over the -10+70C temperature range.
