Size (6) 1.00"x1.75"x.63" (25.4mm x 44.5mm x 16.0mm)
Outline: DC200104 Rev 1A
* Higher frequency units (17 to 23 GHz) available in DC200102 Rev. 4 housing, consult factory.

 

Notes:
(1)  Accuracy +/- 2 MHz max
(2) Typical power level at least 1 dB higher than minimum.  
     Higher power level available
(3) Guaranteed phase noise is 5 dB higher than typical
(4) Wider temperature range available
(5) +12V nominal, other voltages customer to specify
(6) Height dimension of .63" exclude tuning screw height (.25" max), Height to be .75" under 8 GHz.
Unit performances frequently meet or exceed typical level

Applications: Small size and cost effective, temperature stable with excellent phase noise and low microphonics.  Frequency is field adjustable mechanically, ideal for commercial communication: Fiber Optics, up/down converter or tranceiver LO applications, where low cost, excellent phase noise and frequency stability are optimized to system performance requirements.
