(VCO)/Synthesizer is a fully integrated, high performance signal source for high dynamic range Transceivers
The device provides ultra-fine frequency resolution, fast switching speed, and low phase noise performance for 2G, 2.5G
and 3G base station Transceivers
The SKY73103-11 VCO
Synthesizer is a key building block for high-performance radio system designs that require low power and a fine step size. Reference Clock Generators
with an output frequency up to 52 MHz can be used with the SKY73103-11. The input clock frequency is divided down by programmable dividers (1 to 8) for the synthesizer. The phase detector can operate at a maximum speed of 26 MHz, which allows better phase noise due to the lower division value. The SKY73103-11 VCO
Synthesizer is provided in a compact, 38- pin Multi-Chip Module (MCM). The device package and pinout are shown in Figure 1. A functional block diagram is shown in Figure 2. Signal pin assignments and functional pin descriptions are provided in Table 1.
