Surface Mount VCO
VCO model OAS7700 operates from 5700 to 7700 MHz and combines an oscillator circuit, lowpass filter and MMIC amplifier all in a standard surface mount package. This oscillator is designed for linear tuning and low phase noise. Typical performance includes average tuning sensitivity of 150 MHz/V, phase noise better than 100 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz, 2:1 tuning linearity over frequency and temperature, and suppresses harmonics to better than 25 dBc. Output power is set to 10 dBm ± 2.0 dB over the 54°C to 85°C temperature range. This VCO covers the frequency range in 0 to 15 volts, and draws 100 mA from a 5 V DC supply.
