Series FE Frequency Extender

The series FE Frequency Extender has been designed to extend, at a low cost, the frequency range of the high performance Fast Indirect Synthesizers enabling operation from 0.5 to 40 GHz.

The following product families may be used as an input source for the FE Frequency Extender: SW0120, SF6219, SM6220, D6218.

The SM6220 synthesizer is capable of wideband frequency modulation with a span of 1 GHz. The FE Frequency Extender is supporting this capability through millimeter wave. The result of combining the SM6220 with the FE is a wideband synthesizer capable of wideband frequency modulation with a span of 1 GHz up to 40 GHz.

For military applications, this product requires option G09 to comply with Military Standards. The specific environmental MIL STD requirements as well as the EMI/RFI specifications should be provided by the customer.

NOTES
TTL Logic Levels:

"0" - -0.3 to +0.8V
"1" - +2 to +5V

CONTROL COMMAND

• Switch control logic signal shall be 3 line binary coded TTL logic, as described in the logic table.

• Shut-Down Mode - the unit is set to J4 and there is no current to the frequency divider.
