January 28, 2013 Press Release
Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model in the S-band.
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
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
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
is well suited for mobile radio and test instrumentation applications that require minimal power
consumption as well as low phase noise.
