Debugging the LTC6946: Getting the PLL to Lock

Michel Azarian - Product Marketing Engineer Mar 21st 2013
The DC1705 and the PLLWizard software provide a complete evaluation system for the LTC6946 that makes it easy to determine how the part will behave in your system. However, a common problem can occur when designing any PLL system - what if the PLL is not locking to the proper frequency?  In cases where the LTC6946 RF output ...

LTC6945 Wideband Point-to-Point Radio Local Oscillator

Dec 13th 2011
The LTC6945 is a high performance, low noise, 6GHz phase locked loop (PLL), including a reference divider, phase frequency detector (PFD) with phase-lock indicator, charge pump, integer feedback divider and VCO output divider. The part features a buffered, programmable VCO output divider with a range of 1 through 6. The differential, ...



Low Phase Noise Frequency Synthesizers for RF Applications

Doug LaPorte - Design Manager Sep 19th 2011
In modern RF communication systems, signal integrity is of prime importance. To meet the system requirements, amplifiers, mixers and modulators must have a low noise figure and low distortion products. Additionally, as system designers work to squeeze increasingly more data into the available bandwidth, low phase noise signal ...
