PMI Model No. PFS-618-CD-2 is a high speed frequency synthesizer that operates over the frequency range of 6.0 to 18.0GHz. This model covers the complete 6.0 to 18.0GHz frequency in 100kHz steps with an output power of +10dBm minimum. The unit is accurate to within ± 1MHz and settles within 1usec maximum. This model features low SSB Noise and a low spurious output of -50dBc typical. Harmonics are kept below -30dBc. Frequency Modulation is offered and has a bandwidth of DC to 10MHz with ± 400MHz minimum at 100MHz / volt. The package is compact in size and measures only 6.48" x 6.23" x 1.6"
