General Description

The HMC834LP6GE is a low noise, wide band, Fractional-N Phase-Locked-Loop (PLL) that features an integrated Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) with a fundamental frequency of 2800 MHz - 4200 MHz, and an integrated VCO Output Divider (divide by 1/2/4/6.../60/62) and doubler, that together allow the HMC834LP6GE to generate frequencies from 45 MHz to 1050 MHz, from 1400 MHz to 2100 MHz, from 2800 MHz to 4200 MHz, and from 5600 MHz to 8400 MHz. The integrated Phase Detector (PD) and delta-sigma modulator, capable of operating at up to 100 MHz, permit wider loop-bandwidths with excellent spectral performance.

The HMC834LP6GE features industry leading phase noise and spurious performance, across all frequencies, that enable it to minimize blocker effects, and improve receiver sensitivity and transmitter spectral purity. The superior noise floor (< -170 dBc/Hz) makes the HMC834LP6GE an ideal source for a variety of applications - such as; LO for RF mixers, a clock source for high-frequency data-converters, or a tunable reference source for ultra-low spurious applications.

Additional features of the HMC834LP6GE include RF output power control from 0 to 6 dB (~2 dB steps), output Mute function, and a delta-sigma modulator Exact Frequency Mode which enables users to generate output frequencies with 0 Hz frequency error.
