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
