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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Z-Comm Intros Octave Tuning VCO for 3 to 6 GHz
September 11, 2013
-- Fixed Frequency Synthesizer: SFS10000C-LF Features
Ultra Low Phase Noise
Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage-Controlled Oscillator) model
ideal for satellite communication applications. The V600ME45-LF operates from 3000 to 6000 MHz
with a tuning voltage range of 0-24 Vdc. This octave tuning VCO features a typical phase
noise of -103 dBc/Hz @ 100 kHz offset and an average tuning sensitivity of 147 MHz/V.
is designed to deliver a typical output power of 6 dBm into a 50 ohm load while operating
from a 12 Vdc supply and drawing only 24 mA. It operates over the industrial temperature
range of -40 to 85ºC while suppressing the second harmonic to better than -12 dBc. This
robust VCO comes in Z-COMM's standard MINI-16-LOW package measuring 0.5 in. x 0.5 in. x 0.16 in.
is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and is available in tape and reel packaging.
