Technology From Z-COMM: ZRO0743B2LF Features Extremely
Low Phase Noise
August 26, 2008: Z-Communications, Inc. proudly
announces the release of a new breakthrough model of
a coaxial resonator based VCO in the UHF-band,
that is RoHS compliant. The new model, ZRO0743B2LF which
is the first VCO of an exciting new series of products
in development by Z-COMM, operates from 738-748
MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0-6 Vdc. This VCO
features an excellent typical phase noise of -131 dBc/Hz
@ 10 KHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of
is designed to deliver
output power of 9 dBm
at 8 Vdc supply while drawing 23 mA (typical) over the
temperature range of -40º to 85º C.
The ZRO0743B2LF has
a typical phase noise value of -104 dBc/Hz @ 1 KHz offset
and -151 dBc/Hz @ 100 KHz offset. This VCO features
typical 2nd harmonic suppression of -20 dBc
and comes in Z-COMM’s newly developed ZMX-14-SM package,
measuring 0.75 in. x 0.75 in. x 0.22 in. It is available
in tape and reel packaging for production requirements.
The ZRO0743B2LF is also ideal for automated surface
mount assembly and reflow assembly process.
ZRO0743B2LF is well
suited for satellite communication and many other applications
that require superior phase noise performance. Additional
specifications for this product can be found on-line
