Frequency generation, radar, and exciter applications depend on the ruggedized SPDRO series.MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for shock and vibration.Size: 2.25" x 2.25”x 0.65”

Elcom's SPDRO's are pushing barriers in commercial and military systems.  Utilizing the latest technologies, the miniature SPDRO sources employ a proprietary technique to phase lock a microwave DRO to a 10   MHz   crystal   reference. The   technique   utilizes   a single loop for reliable phase-lock performance. By using one loop, size, power consumption and cost are minimized.

The SPDROs are deployed in critical EW and ELINT applications. The oscillators are available in multiple bands and ruggedized packages along with extended temperature ranges (-45 to +85 deg C). The SPDROs are deployed in new programs and can be used to replace older obsolete systems in legacy programs to improve performance.

The units offer ultra-low phase noise a built in OCXO option, 15 dbm output power and -80 dB spurious.
