The frequency dividers from Pasternack utilize advanced GaAs HBT MMIC semiconductor technology that produces low additive single sideband phase noise performance with typical levels down to –155 dBc/Hz at 100 KHz offset. Input power ranges from –20 to +10 dBm with output power ranging from –1 to –4 dBm, depending on the model.
Other specifications include a fast output transition time of 100 picoseconds, high reverse leakage levels up to 85 dB, single +5V DC power supply and an operating temperature range of –55° C to +85° C. All models are EAR99.
The frequency dividers are designed into compact miniature packages that support field replaceable SMA connectors and mounting fixtures that can be removed for convenient PCB “drop-in” applications. The rugged Kovar package designs are gold-over-nickel plated, hermetically sealed and guaranteed to meet MIL-STD-883 environmental test conditions for temperature cycle and fine and gross leak testing.
