Crystek Microwave (Fort Meyers, FL) has announced the release of a 2 GHZ RF Source, the CRFS75-2000. Crystek designed the module using proprietary circuitry and SAW (surface acoustic wave) resonator technology to provide ultra-low jitter/phase noise performance with true SineWave output. The resulting source features -134 dBc/Hz phase noise at 10 KHz offset and a noise floor of -164 dBc/Hz. Crystek's CRFS75-2000 comes in a 0.75 in. x 0.75 in SMT package. With 5 V input voltage, it generates a true-sinewave with +5 dBm min. output power. The new source has no sub-harmonics; second harmonic is -20 dBc typical. Frequency accuracy is rated at +/- 150 ppm. The CRFS75- 2000 operates from -40°C to +85°C.
