Z-Communications Intros 2850 to 3050 MHz S-Band VCO

Z-Communications, Inc.

January 28, 2013 Press Release

Z-Comm SMV2950A-LF case - RF CafeZ-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model  in the S-band. The SMV2950A-LF operates at 2850 to 3050 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0 to 2.5 Vdc. This compact VCO features phase noise of -85 dBc/Hz @10 kHz offset while operating off a 3.0 Vdc supply and typically drawing 15 mA of current. The SMV2950A-LF provides the end user typical output power of 3±3 dBm into a 50 Ω load while operating over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85 ºC. 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 SMV2950A-LF comes in Z-Comm's standard SUB-L package measuring a mere 0.3 in. x 0.3 in. x 0.08 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements making it ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow. The SMV2950A-LF is well suited for mobile radio and test instrumentation applications that require minimal power consumption as well as low phase noise.
