ELECTRONICS: Crystek’s CPLL66-3475-3475 PLL/Synthesizer operates at 3475 MHz with a typical Step Size of 2500 KHz. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the model CPLL66-3475-3475 is housed in a compact 0.6-inch x 0.6-inch x 0.15-inch 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 CPLL66-3475-3475 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 CPLL66-3475-3475 is programmed using a standard three line interface (Data, Clock and Load Enable).
Typical phase noise for the CPLL66-3475-3475 is -95 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset with minimum output power of 3 dBm. VCO voltage is 5V dcdc; PLL voltage is 3V dc. Second harmonic suppression is -15 dBc typical.
The CPLL66-3475-3475 is ideal for use in telecommunications, computers, radio equipment, base stations and other electronic applications. For pricing details, contact Crystek Corp.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
Neil Fromer is the executive director of the Resnick Institute, a program for energy and sustainability at the California Institute of Technology, working to develop new ideas and research technologies related to providing a sustainable future. He spoke to us about the severity of the current drought in California and how solar energy can help prevent such situations in the future.
