Superior 2nd Harmonic
SAN DIEGO, December 2, 2008:
announces a new VCO (Voltage-Controlled Oscillator) model CRO5100Z in
C-band. The CRO5100Z operates from 5090-5110 MHz with a tuning voltage
range of 0.5-4.5 Vdc. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -104
dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 20 MHz/V.
CRO5100Z is designed to deliver a typical output power of 3 dBm at 5
Vdc supply while drawing 118 mA (typical, due to the internal doubler)
over the temperature range of 0º to 85º C. This VCO features superior
2nd harmonic suppression of -40 dBc (typical) and comes in Z-Comm’s
industry standard VCO-24H package measuring 0.63 in. x 0.866 in. x 0.22
in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements.
The CRO5100Z is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and
CRO5100Z is well suited for microwave radio applications
that require superior 2nd harmonic suppression and ultra low phase noise
performance. Additional specifications for this product can be found
