-- VCO: USSP1325-LF Features Ultra Compact Size and Low Phase Noise
Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model
in the L-band. The USSP1325-LF operates at 1250 to 1400 MHz with a tuning voltage range
of 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc. This miniaturized VCO features phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz
offset while operating off a 5 Vdc supply and typically drawing only 25 mA of current.
USSP1325-LF provides the end user an output power of 3±3 dBm into a 50 Ω load while
operating over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85 º C. This robust VCO suppresses
the second harmonic to better than -15 dBc and covers the frequency range with a tuning
linearity of better than 1.1:1. The USSP1325-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.
USSP1325-LF is well suited for portable radio and test equipment applications that require low
power consumption as well as low phase noise. Additional specifications for this product can
be found on-line at:
