Mon, 11/10/2008 - 11:23am
Z-Communications, Inc. announces its model CRO3467A-LF in an S-band RoHS-compliant coaxial resonator VCO. It operates from 3460 to 3475 MHz with a tuning voltage range from 0.50 to 4.50 V DC. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -112 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset, and a typical tuning sensitivity of 16 MHz/V. The VCO delivers a typical output power of 4.5 dBm at 5 V DC supply while drawing 20 mA (typical) over the temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. It features second harmonic suppression of -20 dBc (typical) and comes in an industry standard MINI package measuring 0.50? × 0.50? × 0.22?. The VCO is suitable for commercial aviation and point-to-point radio applications that require ultra low phase noise performance.
