The APL - 03 series of fundamental frequency phase locked oscillators utilise coaxial resonators (CRO) to 3.4 GHz and dielectric resonators (DRO) to 14 GHz in a phase locked loop for use with an external reference. Circuit design uses SMT devices including Si bipolar active devices up to 3.4 GHz and GaAs FET active devices above 3.4 GHz. The output contains a buffer amplifier for improved ruggedness, higher output power and a wider range of load VSWR. DRO types have an external tuning screw for factory set up only.
Frequencies above 14 GHz are available - please contact us for more information.
|Offset Frequency (Hz)||Output Frequency (GHz)|
|100||Reference Dependent - See Notes|
|1K||Reference Dependent - See Notes|
|10K||Reference Dependent - See Notes|
Reference Frequency Notes:
The output frequency must be an integral multiple of the reference frequency.
Reference level required 0+/-3dBm.
At offset frequencies up to 100Hz, the output phase noise is degraded from that of the reference oscillator by approximately 20logN+3dB, where N is the ratio of the output to the reference frequency.
