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 noise output buffer has user-programmable output power ranging from –6dBm to 3dBm, and may be muted through either a digital input pin or software.
The low noise reference buffer outputs a typical 0dBm square wave directly into a 50Ω impedance from 10MHz to 250MHz, or may be disabled through software.
The ultralow noise charge pump contains selectable high and low voltage clamps useful for VCO monitoring, and also may be set to provide a V+/2 bias.
All device settings are controlled through a SPI-compatible serial port.

Demonstration Circuit 2429A is a PLL/VCO Supply and Reference Frequency Board that features the LT3042, an ultralow noise and ultrahigh PSRR RF linear regulator. When powered from a 6V to 20V lab or wall wart supply, the DC2429A produces four ultralow noise supplies using seven LT3042s. These supplies include a fixed 3.3V/800mA supply (four LT3042's in parallel), a fixed 5V/200mA supply, a fixed 3.3V/200mA supply that powers an onboard 100MHz ultralow jitter crystal oscillator, and an adjustable voltage (2.5V to 15V), 200mA supply ideal for powering external VCOs. The DC2429 ensures PLL/VCO evaluation meets data sheet performance.
