-- VCO: USSP1217-LF Features Low Power Consumption
and Ultra Compact Size
Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator)
model USSP1217-LF in the L-band. The USSP1217-LF operates at 1210 to 1230 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0.5 to
3.0 Vdc. This miniaturized VCO features phase noise of -102 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset while operating off a 3.3Vdc supply
and typically drawing only 13mA of current.
USSP1217-LF provides the end user an output power of 3±3 dBm into a 50Ω load while operating over the industrial temperature
range of -40 to 85º C. This robust VCO suppresses the second harmonic to better than -13 dBc and covers the frequency
range with a tuning linearity of better than 1.1:1. The USSP1217-LF comes in Z-Comm's standard USSP package measuring
a mere 0.2 in. x 0.2 in. x 0.06 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements making
it ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
The USSP1217-LF is well suited for mobile radio
and satellite communication applications that require minimal power consumption as well as low phase noise. Additional
specifications for this product can be found on-line at:
