S-Band VCO Features Low Phase Noise
Z-Communications, Inc. announces its RoHS-compliant, voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) Model CRO2905A-LF in S-band. It operates at 2905 MHz (single frequency) with a tuning voltage range from 0.5 to 4.5 V DC. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -114 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 13 MHz/V. The device delivers a typical output power of 6.5 dBm at a 5 V DC supply while drawing 19 mA (typical) over the temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. The VCO features optimal typical second harmonic suppression of -20 dBc and comes in an industry standard mini package measuring 0.50" × ?0.50" × 0.22". ?
