Oscillator) model SMV3400A-LF in S-band. The SMV3400A-LF
operates from 3220-3580 MHz with a tuning voltage range
of 0.5-3 Vdc. This VCO features a typical phase noise
of -80 dBc/Hz @10KHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity
of 230 MHz/V.
The SMV3400A-LF is designed to
deliver a typical output power of 5 dBm at 3.3V DC supply
while drawing only 16 mA (typical) over the temperature
range of -30º to 85ºC. This VCO features excellent typical
2nd harmonic suppression of -30 dBc and comes in Z-Comm’s
industry SUB MINI-L package measuring only 0.3 in. x
0.3 in. x 0.08 in. It is available in tape and reel
packaging for production requirements. The SMV3400A-LF
is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and
SMV3400A-LF is well suited for satellite
communication applications that require superior 2nd
harmonic suppression and ultra low phase noise performance.
