Z-Communications, Inc. announces its lead free, RoHS compliant oscillator (model CLV1548A-LF) in L-band (15111585 MHz), featuring ultra low phase noise performance of 𤩗 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset. The design covers the bandwidth between 2 to 4.4 V only, and it offers typical tuning sensitivity of 56 MHz/V. This VCO operates at 5 V DC supply, while drawing 19 mA (typical) over the extended operating temperature range of -40 °C to 85 °C. The oscillator is suitable for applications that require superior second harmonic suppression and ultra low phase noise performance such as automated surface mount assembly and reflow. It comes in an industry standard MINI package measuring 0.50 inchesࡦ.50 inchesࡦ.16 inches.
