Fairview Microwave Debuts Frequency Dividers with SMA Connectorized Packages

February 11, 2020 Perry Cohen

Fairview Microwave, a provider of on-demand RF, microwave, and millimeter wave components, introduced a new line of frequency divider modules that cover broadband frequencies from 0.1 GHz to 20 GHz.

The RF frequency divider modules are designed for high reliability. Most models, according to the company, are guaranteed to meet MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for shock, humidity, vibration, and altitude. Some models are sealed and guaranteed to meet MIL-STD-883 environmental test conditions for temperature cycle and fine, gross leak.

A comprehensive offering of 28 different models features fixed divide-by-ratios from 2 to 40.  The compact prescalers are built for use in frequency synthesizer and phase locked loop (PLL) circuit designs, as well as test instrumentation systems.  These rugged frequency dividers are typically used in applications such as satellite communications, VSAT, aerospace and defense, test and measurement, and point-to-point radio networks.

This line of dividers is available in compact and rugged SMA connectorized packages with input power ranging from -20 to +15 dBm, and output power ranging from -6 to +5 dBm depending on the model. The circuit assemblies feature advanced GaAs HBT MMIC semiconductor technology that produces low additive SSB phase noise performance with typical levels down to -155 dBc/Hz at 100 KHz offset.
