Product Details

The HMC832LP6GE is a 3.3 V, high performance, wide-band, Fractional-N Phase-Locked-Loop (PLL) that features an integrated Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) with a fundamental frequency of 1500 MHz - 3000 MHz, and an integrated VCO Output Divider (divide by 1/2/4/6.../60/62), that enables the HMC832LP6GE to generate continuous frequencies from 25 MHz to 3000 MHz. The integrated Phase Detector (PD) and delta-sigma modulator, capable of operating at up to 100 MHz, permit wider loop-bandwidths and faster frequency tuning, with excellent spectral performance.

Industry leading phase noise and spurious performance, across all frequencies, enable the HMC832LP6GE to minimize blocker effects, improve receiver sensitivity and transmitter spectral purity. Low noise floor (-160 dBc/Hz) eliminates any contribution to modulator/mixer noise floor in transmitter applications.

The HMC832LP6GE features all 3.3 V supply and an innovative Programmable Performance technology that enables the HMC832LP6GE to tailor current consumption and corresponding noise floor performance to each individual application by selecting either a low current consumption mode, or a high performance mode for an improved noise floor performance.

Additional features of the HMC832LP6GE include 12 dB of RF output gain control in 1 dB steps; Output Mute function to automatically mute the output during frequency changes when the device is not locked; Selectable resistance for better output return loss; Programmable differential or single-ended outputs, with the ability to select either output in single-ended mode; and a delta-sigma modulator Exact Frequency Mode which enables users to generate output frequencies with 0 Hz frequency error.

Tools & Simulations

Design Tools


ADIsimPLL enables the rapid and reliable evaluation of new high performance PLL products from ADI. It is the most comprehensive PLL Synthesizer design and simulation tool available today. Simulations performed include all key non-linear effects that are significant in affecting PLL performance. ADIsimPLL removes at least one iteration from the design process, thereby speeding the design- to-market.

ADIsimFrequency Planner Tool

For those developers dealing with integer boundary spurs from Analog’s PLL synthesizers, the best solution is ADIsimFrequencyPlanner. The frequency planner quickly analyzes the PFD frequency for a user’s output requirements and then optimizes the frequency of each output to identify the highest contributing integer boundary spur performance.
