IFM Series (Outputs to 16 GHz)

IFM Series block

Description

The IFM Series products are low noise multiplier modules which are highly integrated with filters, amplifiers and an optional voltage regulator into a single package and offer exceptionally low phase noise, excellent spectral purity and good conversion efficiency.  Multiplication factors of x2 to x3200 are available using a combination of up to six (6) standard multipliers (x2, x3, x4, x5, x7, x9 and x11) cascaded together with output frequencies to 16 GHz. Ideal for up-converting ultra low noise frequency sources to higher frequencies.

Features:

  • Input Frequency: 5 MHz to 8 GHz
  • Multiplication Factors: x2 to x3200
  • Output Frequency to 16 GHz
  • Low Conversion Loss
  • Intrinsic Phase Noise to -176 dBc/Hz
  • Integral Filters and Amplifiers
  • Optional Low Noise Voltage Regulator

 

Applications:

  • Synthesizer Building Block
  • Communication Systems
  • Radar Systems
  • Electronic Warfare Systems
  • Frequency Up-Converter
