Hittite offers a wide selection of high-performance wide and narrowband PLLVCOs that operate at up to 8.4GHz frequencies.
With industry-leading phase noise (-110 dBc/Hz in-band and -141 dBc/Hz at 1MHz offset, 2 GHz operating frequency) and spurious performance across all frequencies, the PLLVCOs help designers minimize blocker effects, improve receiver sensitivity, and increase transmitter spectral purity. The best-in-class EVM performance satisfies the most demanding applications in cellular and microwave backhaul markets.
Industry-leading spurious performance simplifies radio design and enables radio designers to achieve maximum performance. Unparalleled in the industry, the products feature less than -55 dBc/Hz inside the loop-bandwidth spurious performance, and significantly better performance outside the loop bandwidth (<-90 dBc/Hz). The PLLVCOs do not emit any channel spurs, which is critical in cellular and microwave radio markets where users often program channel step size according to the channel spacing of the particular standard of the radio.
