IRVINE, Calif. – Pasternack Enterprises in Irvine, Calif., is introducing phase locked oscillators (PLO) for radar technology and other exciter or frequency generation applications. These PLOs are built to be rugged and withstand stringent MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for shock and vibration.

These PLOs deliver accurate and stable output frequencies with low phase noise and spurious performance in applications like phase locked loops, frequency synthesizers, function generators, and as a local oscillator source in receiver and transmitter stages.

Pasternack's 20 phase locked oscillator models come with popular fixed output frequencies of 50, 100, 500, 1000, 2000, 4000, and 6000 MHz. Typical performance for these PLOs includes excellent phase noise of -105 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset, a buffered output power level of +7 dBm and low second harmonic and spurious suppression levels of -25 dBc and -70 dBc respectively.

They require an external frequency reference of either 10 MHz or 100 MHz and feature a TTL lock detect output to signal an out-of-lock condition.

These phase locked oscillator models are RoHS compliant and operate in temperatures from -30 to 70 degrees Celsius. They require a positive DC voltage supply are available in either SMA-connectorized or compact surface mount or packages.

SMA-connectorized packages are nickel-plated with DC bias and signal pins and an integrated mounting baseplate. Surface mount packages feature gold over nickel mounting surfaces with downloadable Gerber file software for the mounting footprint.
