Low Power dual RF/IF Integer-N PLL
The ADF4218L Synthesizer IC when combined with a VCO and loop filter forms a complete phased locked loop (PLL). This solution from ADI creates state-of-the-art LO's (local oscillator) for the upconversion and downconversion of RF signals in Wireless applications. The PLL consists of a low noise digital phase frequency detector (PFD), a precision charge pump, a programmable reference divider, programmable A and B counters and a dual-modulus prescaler (P/P+1).
The ADF4217L and ADF4218L are low current consumption improvements on the released ADF4217 and ADF4218 and are available in TSSOP and MLF (LFCSP). The ADF4219L is a Phase Noise upgrade & pin compatible to the LMX2370 from National Semiconductor and is available in both TSSOP and MLF (Cason).
Sales Collateral Available: Full data sheet with performance graphs, press release, circuit simulation included in ADISimPLL released on February 1, 2002, evaluation board and software available.
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
