The MW0500-1423 VCO covers 2.5 - 5.0 GHz while providing +4 dB output and ± 1dB flatness, over a tuning voltage range of 0 to 22 V. In a low cost compact 0.500 inches sq. x 0.15 inches SM package, the MW500-1423 draws 30 mA from a +5 V supply. Phase noise is typically 105 dBc/Hz @ 100kHz, and harmonics are at least 20 dB down. Even with this wide and high frequency bandwidth, the VCO is stable; pushing and pulling 8 MHz/V and 23 MHz p-p respectively. Modulation BW is 135MHz (ן dB). The MW500-1423 is suited for high-speed data transmission, ultra-wideband (UWB) radios and radar, and very fast tuning wideband instrumentation.
