Z-Communications, Inc. announces its model CLV1625A-LF in an L-band RoHS-compliant VCO. It operates from 1510 to 1740 MHz with a tuning voltage range from 0.50 to 11.50 V DC. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -107 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset, and a typical tuning sensitivity of 28 MHz/V. The VCO delivers a typical output power of 0 dBm at 3.3 V DC supply while drawing 23 mA (typical) over the temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. This VCO features typical second harmonic suppression of -15 dBc, and it comes in an industry standard MINI package with a low shield measuring 0.50? × 0.50? × 0.13?. It is suitable for digital radio and base station applications that require low phase noise performance.
