Rakon releases its highest frequency – 10 GHz ultra-low noise OCVCSO
13 October 2020
Rakon has announced the release of its highest frequency oscillator: the LNO10000B3. The Oven Controlled Voltage Controlled SAW Oscillator (OCVCSO) generates a frequency output signal at 10 GHz. It is designed for X-band systems where superior phase noise performance and high frequency are essential.
LNO10000B3 can phase-lock to an external 10 MHz reference. The OCVCSO’s PLL function allows the system to automatically detect the presence of the 10 MHz reference at the control input and switch on the PLL mode.
The LNO10000B3 offers a microwave frequency output with ultra-low phase noise making it an ideal solution for ground based military equipment, radar and instrumentation applications. The OCVCSO is also a great choice for the latest generation of high speed ADC/DAC where a high frequency clock with ultra-low jitter is essential.
The LNO10000 B3 is available in a 120.7 x 76.2x 23.3 mm package size. Standard frequencies such as 3.2, 4.8, and 5 GHz are also available within the LNO B3 product family. Custom frequencies up to 12 GHz are available upon request.
