M/A-COM Technology Solutions Announces New Additions
-- VCOs Deliver Low Phase Noise, Wide Tuning Range, and Low Current Consumption
to Family of Voltage Controlled Oscillators
Lowell, MA, October 4, 2011 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high
performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a new set of voltage controlled oscillators (VCOs)
for radio applications. The VCOs are ideal for point-to-point radio, point to multipoint radio, communications
systems, and low phase noise applications. The InGaP HBT-based VCOs are easily integrated into a phase lock loop,
using a divide-by-two output. The
MAOC-010334 meet the high performance requirements of high capacity digital radios by optimizing for low phase
noise, wide tuning range, and low current consumption.
MAOC-010334 are expansions to M/A-COM Tech’s point-to-point VCO product family. Low phase noise and low DC
power consumption are key product features that are beneficial for cellular backhaul radios,” said Jack Redus,
Product Manager. “The full product family consists of 15 standard product VCOs covering 5.7 to 14.2 GHz. Custom
frequency ranges are available upon request.”
in a lead-free 5mm, 32-lead PQFN package, the VCOs feature an integrated buffer amplifier and excellent
temperature stability. The package also features low lead inductance and an excellent thermal path. Operating with
case temperature at or below +85°C, the VCOs allows for a MTBF of 2,500,000 hours. With a 5.0 V bias supply, these
VCOs operate between the 8.4 GHz to 11.8 GHz frequency band.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas
and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available
in the form of WYSIWYG
