The ADF4371 delivers one of the highest frequency synthesizers in the industry today, offering the widest continuous RF output range available — 62 MHz to 32 GHz — while the ADF4372 operates at 62 MHz to 16 GHz for designs that do not require the higher frequency.
Analog Devices’ ADF4371 and ADF4372 microwave wideband synthesizers, available from Mouser Electronics, consist of a phase-locked loop (PLL) with fully integrated voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs), low-dropout regulators (LDOs), and tracking filter technology. The devices feature the industry’s lowest jitter (36 fs at 10 GHz) and facilitate the implementation of high-resolution fractional-N or integer-N PLL frequency synthesizers when used with an external loop filter and an external reference source.
The compact, 7 mm × 7 mm synthesizers offer the bandwidth, smaller board space footprint, increased reliability, low noise, and increased clocking range and flexibility to complement a wide range of RF applications such as wireless infrastructure equipment (multicarrier global system for mobile communication (MC-GSM; 5G), test equipment and instrumentation, clock generation, and aerospace and defense-based designs. For development, the devices are supported by corresponding evaluation boards and an SDP-S Controller Board, also available from Mouser.
