Re: Increasing output of pll synth

Hi Stuart

 

My eBay ADF5355 board gave me nearer +2 dBm out at 12 GHz.  I used the input stages from an old LNB to boost it to about +12 dBm.  Not sure if another stage would have added much more.

Subject: [UKMicrowaves] Increasing output of pll synth

 

I am looking at using one of the pll synth boards as the LO for a 24GHz transverter.
The ADF5355 board I am looking at gives +12dBm out at 12GHz
My transverter requires 14 - 17dBm
Are there any cheap / simple amplifier modules available to increase the output level?

thanks............Stuart
