Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model
V846ME24-LF in the S-band. The
operates at 3100 to 3500 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 1 to 12 Vdc and provides better than 1.1:1 tuning linearity.
This high performance VCO features a spectrally clean signal of -114 dBc/Hz @ 100 kHz offset and a typical tuning
sensitivity of 62 MHz/V.
is designed to deliver 3 dBm of output power into a 50 Ω load while operating off a 5 Vdc supply and
drawing typically 22 mA of current. This low noise VCO operates over the extended commercial temperature range
of -30 to 80ºC. The V846ME24-LF features typical second harmonic suppression of -20 dBc and comes in Z-Comm's standard,
low profile MINI-14H-L package measuring 0.5 in. x 0.5 in. x 0.13 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for
production requirements making it ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
is well suited for radio broadcast links and satellite communication applications that require low phase noise performance.
