Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage-Controlled Oscillator) Model CRO2690A-LF. The CRO2690A-LF operates at 2690 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -114 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 7 MHz/V. The CRO2690A-LF is designed to deliver a typical output power of 4 dBm at 5 Vdc supply while drawing 22 mA (typical) over the temperature range of -40º to 85ºC. This VCO features typical second harmonic suppression of -15 dBc and comes in Z-Comm's standard MINI-16-SM package measuring 0.5 in. x 0.5 in. x 0.22 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements. The CRO2690A-LF is also appropriate for automated surface mount assembly and reflow. CRO2690A-LF is well suited for satellite communications and test and measurement applications that require ultra low phase noise performance.
