Model MFSH170340-50 is a miniature surface-mount frequency synthesizer from Synergy Microwave that tunes from 1700 to 3400 MHz in 0.5-MHz steps. It boasts phase noise of -85 dBc/Hz offset 10 kHz from the carrier and -108 dBc/Hz offset 100 kHz from the carrier. It delivers at least 0 dBm output power with -75 dBc typical spurious levels and -12 dBc typical harmonic levels. The frequency synthesizer, which is supplied in a compact surface-mount housing measuring only 0.6 x 0.6 in., tunes frequencies with settling time of typically 5 ms.
