which gives unprecendeted bandwidth, sensitivity and cost-effectiveness.
The base product is the XP12-10 which is a true divide-by-10
prescaler operating over the input frequency range 50MHz - 12.5GHz.
Input sensitivity - better than -15dBm @ 12.5GHz
Output level - -1dBm
Low phase noise - <-150dBc/Hz at 100kHz offset
Requires a single +12V supply at 220mA
Supplied as built and tested PCB with SMA sockets - only
Also available :- Box-kit - tinplate box (requires drilling/soldering),
feedthrus, SMA plug+skt, screws - £15
