Frequency phase-locked loops (PLLs) provide an electronic system for generating any of a range of frequencies from a single fixed time base or oscillator. Peregrine’s UltraCMOS® PLLs feature a very low phase noise figure of merit, which improves the signal-to-noise ratio and helps reduce the overall system cost while improving performance. An integrated phase detector and flexible serial or direct hard-wire interfaces provide additional design flexibility. The components also feature low power consumption, which reduces thermal issues and extends battery life.
Peregrine’s Integer-N PLLs are ideal for base station systems – local multiband distribution service (LMDS), multichannel multiband distribution service (MMDS), wireless local loop (WLL) – as well as RF frequency generation; L, S and C-band synthesizers; and clock recovery in communication systems, mobile terminals, telemetry, radar and portable radios.
In addition to the products listed below, Peregrine manufactures several high-reliability PLLs that are available through e2v. Visit e2v for product information.
