Frequency dividers with rugged SMA connectorised packages

Pasternack has launched a new line of frequency divider modules that cover broadband frequencies from 0.1 to 20GHz. A comprehensive selection of 28 different models is offered with a variety of fixed divide-by-ratios from two to 40. These prescalers are ideal for use in phase locked loop (PLL) and frequency synthesiser circuit designs, as well as test instrumentation. 

Typical applications include use in aerospace and defence, satellite communications, VSAT, test and measurement equipment, and point-to-point radio networks.

Designs are available in compact and rugged SMA connectorised packages. Circuit assemblies feature advanced GaAs HBT MMIC semiconductor technology that produces low additive SSB phase noise performance with typical levels down to -155 dBc/Hz at 100KHz offset. Input power ranges from -20 to +15 dBm, with output power ranges from -6 to +5 dBm depending on the model.

All Pasternack frequency divider modules are designed for high reliability. Most models are guaranteed to meet MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for humidity, shock, vibration and altitude. Some models are hermetically sealed and guaranteed to meet MIL-STD-883 environmental test conditions for temperature cycle and fine & gross leak.

“Our new line of frequency divider modules covers wide frequency bands from 0.1 to 20GHz and offers a broad selection of fixed divide-by-ratio configurations. Designers will find this comprehensive selection desirable to optimise performance for phase locked loops and other applications,” said Tim Galla, Product Manager.

Pasternack’s new frequency dividers are in-stock and available for same-day shipping with no minimum order requirement.
