Key Features

     -104 dBc/Hz @ 10kHz offset, 1 GHz carrier

The SC5308A is a compact, high performance triple stage heterodyne downconverter designed to meet demanding applications such as RF instrumentation, wireless communications, satellite link, software defined radio and signal intelligence. With input RF frequency ranging from DC to 6 GHz, the SC5308A has flexible IF bandwidths of 80 MHz, 160 MHz, and 320 MHz. The module uses a YIG oscillator as its tunable RF LO, which provides excellent phase noise, thus contributing negligible noise to the down-converted RF signal. It exhibits low phase noise of -104 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset on a 1 GHz RF carrier.

The SC5308A may be controlled via a computer, laptop, or embedded device using USB, SPI, or RS-232. The device is powered off of a single rail +12V supply. Driver and development software is provided, as well as a software GUI that allows users to easily control the device without having to write control software.
