Fort Myers, FL - July 9, 2009 - Crystek's CPLL66-1600-2200 PLL/Synthesizer operates from 1600 MHz to 2200 MHz with a typical Step Size of 1000 KHz. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the model CPLL66-1600-2200 is housed in a compact 0.6-in. x 0.6-in. x 0.15-in. SMD package, which saves board space.

Crystek's PLL/Synthesizer construction essentially wraps a VCO around a PLL in a package that's only marginally larger than a VCO on its own, and significantly smaller than separate VCO/PLL modules. The CPLL66-1600-2200 is a complete PLL/Synthesizer needing only an external frequency reference and supply voltages for the internal PLL (phase lock loop) and VCO (voltage controlled oscillator). The Crystek CPLL66-1600-2200 is programmed using a standard three line interface (Data, Clock and Load Enable).

Typical phase noise for the CPLL66-1600-2200 is -96 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset with minimum outpout power of +7 dBm. VCO voltage is 12 Vdc; PLL voltage is 3 Vdc. Second harmonic suppression is -15 dBc typical.

The CPLL66-1600-2200 is ideal for use in telecommunications, computers, radio equipment, base stations and other electronic applications. For pricing details, contact Crystek Corporation.
