Tue, 01/22/2008 - 5:53am
Z-Communications, Inc. announces its model CLV3150A-LF lead free, RoHS-compliant oscillator in S band (3,149 to 3,151 MHz) that features low phase noise performance of -100 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset. Its offers optimal harmonic suppression of –15 dBc (typical) with a tuning sensitivity of 13 MHz/V, covering the band between 1 to 4V. This VCO is designed to operate at a 5 VDC supply while drawing 19 mA (typical) over the extended operating temperature range of -40° to 85° C. The oscillator is well suited for narrow-band applications that require ultra-low phase noise performance, including automated surface mount assembly and reflow. It comes in an industry standard MINI package measuring 0.50 inchesࡦ.50 inchesࡦ.22 inches.
