Pasternack Launches Phase Locked Oscillators in Six Single Output Frequencies between 50 MHz to 6000 MHz

New Phase Locked Oscillators Support External Frequency References and Deliver Exceptional Phase Noise Performance

IRVINE, Calif. – Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has unveiled a new line of phase locked oscillators (PLO) that deliver accurate and stable output frequencies with low phase noise and spurious performance, making them ideal for use in radar and other exciter or frequency generation applications. Typical applications include phase locked loops, frequency synthesizers function generators and as a local oscillator source in receiver and transmitter stages.

Pasternack’s 20 new phase locked oscillator models are offered 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 over the full temperature range of -30°C to +70°C. They require a single 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. These PLOs are built to be rugged and withstand stringent MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for shock and vibration.

“Our new, comprehensive line of phase locked oscillators provides designers with a variety of popular fixed output frequencies that are stable and accurate. These 20 innovative designs are key components for many navigation, surveillance, communication or test and measurement systems,” said Tim Galla, Product Manager.

Pasternack’s phase locked oscillators are in stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity. For detailed information on these products, please visit
