Chelmsford, MA, 12/5/2011 - Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets announces the release of a new market leading PLL chip set. The HMC983LP5E DC to 7 GHz Fractional-N Divider and Frequency Sweeper and the HMC984LP4E Digital Phase-Frequency Detector and Charge Pump form a high performance PLL chip set solution targeted at PLL and Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) sweeper applications requiring ultimate performance.
 
The HMC983LP5E integrates the industry’s largest programmable 48-bit Delta-Sigma Modulator which allows the combined PLL to achieve unparalleled fractional frequency resolution of 180 nHz. A built-in frequency sweeper enables the combined PLL to generate identical, coherent, FMCW frequency sweeps that can be linear, user-defined, automatic or triggered.
 
HMC983LP5E DC to 7 GHz Fractional-N Divider and Frequency SweeperThe HMC984LP4E provides an ultra low noise phase detector and charge pump capable of operating at high phase detector frequencies of 125 MHz in fractional mode, and 175 MHz in integer mode. This capability enables the PLL chip set to utilize wider loop bandwidths which result in better phase noise performance, faster PLL locking times, and faster frequency sweeps. The PLL chip set phase noise Figure of Merit performance is -231 dBc/Hz in integer mode and -227 dBc/Hz in fractional mode.
 
Although the HMC983LP5E and the HMC984LP4E can be used separately in stand-alone applications, partitioning the PLL building blocks into two distinct devices achieves superb isolation and results in market leading spurious emissions performance exceeding -60 dBc/Hz inside the loop bandwidth. Both the HMC983LP5E and the HMC984LP4E are housed in plastic leadless surface mount packages and provide excellent temperature stability over the -40 °C to 85 °C operating range.
 
Samples and evaluation PC boards for all SMT packaged products are available from stock and can be ordered via the company’s e-commerce site or via direct purchase order. Released data sheets are available on-line at www.hittite.com.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
