The HMC-C200 is a high performance dielectric resonator oscillator (DRO) that incorporates Hittite’s ultra-low phase noise technology and provides -122 dBc/Hz SS B phase noise at 10 kHz offset. The output buffer also provides 14.5 dBm of output power. Internal temperature compensation allows this DRO to operate over a temperature range of -40°C to + 85°C with a frequency drift of only 2ppm/°C. The Vtune port accepts an analog tuning voltage from +2 to +12V and provides a range of ±1 MHz from the center frequency. The DRO is packaged in a small, moisture sealed 1.5” x 1.5” (36 x 36 mm) module with a field replaceable SMA Connector. The HMC-C200 can be used as a drop-in module if the SMA connector is not used.
Each HMC-C200 DRO requires tuning to a specific frequency in the 8.0 - 8.3 GHz range. To order an HMC-C200, this frequency must be specified at the time of purchase. Hittite guarantees a ±250 kHz range around this specified frequency upon delivery. Please refer to the Application Notes within datasheet for more details. For example, when ordering an HMC-C200 centered at 8.200 GHz, specify HMC-C200-8200.
