Trying to figure out the min. input duty cycle the products will respond to. I have a very low duty cycle pulse train @ 100MHz that I need to divide down. Pulse width is on the order of 200fs.
Thank you dyoung1
If I use HMC705 with eval card in frequency divider, is it possible cascading 2 HMC705 with eval card in order to have N divider number =256 :
- first divider N=16, Freq IN = 1-3GHz
- second divider N=16 Freq Out = 9-11MHz
Perhaps the HMC437, HMC394, or HMC705 might be suitable for your application?
Dividers are essentially "dumb" devices - that is, they take whatever is provided at the input, and if the signal is of sufficient amplitude with a reasonable slew rate and falls within the operating frequency range, it will try to divide…
Some of the other HMC dividers have an input network similar to what you described (as an example HMC705 or HMC492), but this part went a different route for some reason. I also would tend to agree with you the /IN naming convention.
In regards to the diagram…
Question: Why should I consider using an Analog Devices Microwave Frequency Divider?
Answer: With the acquisition of Hittite Microwave Corporation, Analog Devices acquired one of the most comprehensive, microwave frequency divider product lines available…
