Z-Communications, Inc. announces its RoHS-compliant voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) model SMV3400A-LF in S-band that operates from 3220 to 3580 MHz with a tuning voltage range from 0.50 to 3 V DC. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -80 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 230 MHz/V. It delivers a typical output power of 5 dBm at 3.30 V DC supply while drawing only 16 mA (typical) over the temperature range of -30°C to 85°C. The VCO features an optimal typical second harmonic suppression of -30 dBc, and it comes in an industry sub mini-L package measuring 0.30" × 0.30" × 0.08". It is available in tape-and-reel packaging for production requirements. The VCO is suitable for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
