If you’re in the market for a local oscillator (LO), beamforming device, or a precision reference clock for a high-speed data converter in applications such as test and measurement, optical networking, or data acquisition, Renesas Electronics’ 8V97003 millimeter-wave (mmWave) synthesizer may be the answer.
Developed with an eye toward emerging applications above the 6 GHz carrier frequency, including broadband wireless, microwave backhaul, and 5G radios, the 8V97003 delivers a rare combination of wide frequency range (171.875 MHz to 18 GHz), ultra-low output phase noise (-60.6dBc at 20 kHz to 100 MHz at 6 GHz) and high output power over its entire frequency range.
The wide frequency range enables customers to use a single 8V97003 in place of multiple synthesizer modules, reducing area and cost. High output power eliminates the need for an external driver, further reducing complexity and overall power consumption without compromising performance. The ultra-low output phase noise makes it an excellent choice for 5G and other wireless applications as it enables superior system level signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and error vector magnitude (EVM). As a reference clock for high-speed data converters, 8V97003 maximizes system performance by improving SNR and spurious-free-dynamic-range (SFDR).
