Multiplied Phase Locked Oscillators

APITech's line of Multiplied PLOs provides ultra low phase noise performance as well as the ability to modify standard parameters to meet customers’ unique requirements. These Multiplied PLOs also offer flexibility in the desired frequency generation output by utilizing a series of x2 multipliers. With an output range of 80 to 1600 MHz, these passive multiplier designs can be configured for most military airborne and ground based applications.

With 13 models to choose from, these Multiplied PLOs incorporate unique features including: DC Voltage Regulation, Automatic Reference Sensing, Low Current Consumption and Multiple RF Outputs.

Ultra Low Phase Noise
  • Exceptional Phase Noise performance is a hallmark that API Technologies is known for in the industry.
  • By utilizing our ultra low phase noise amplifiers as drivers, our low phase noise experts can reach phase noise levels of -175 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset.
Fully Customizable
  • APITech manufactures both standard and modified standard configurations to meet a customer’s individual needs.
  • Often, we can alter parameters in a standard model without incurring additional surcharges.
Automatic Reference Sensing
  • Each Multiplied PLO incorporates automatic reference sensing allowing you to seamlessly switch from its internal 10 MHz reference to an external reference without the need to reconfiguration or recalibration.
Multiple RF Outputs
  • Multiple RF Output ports are provided to either sample or monitor the RF Output in parallel with the PLO’s main RF output.
