VCO: USSP1570-LF Features Ultra Compact Size and Low Phase Noise
announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model
USSP1570-LF in the
L-band. The USSP1570-LF operates from 1540 to 1600 MHz with the narrow tuning voltage range of
0.5 to 2.5 Vdc. This miniaturized VCO features phase noise of -90 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset while
operating off a 2.7 Vdc supply and drawing a mere 6mA of current.
provides the end user an output power of -1±3 dBm into a 50 Ω load while operating over the
industrial temperature range of -40 to 85º C. This robust VCO suppresses the second harmonic
to better than -25 dBc and covers the frequency range with a tuning linearity of better than
1.1:1. The USSP1570-LF comes in Z-Comm's standard USSP package measuring only 0.2 in. x 0.2
in. x 0.07 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements making
it ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
The USSP1570-LF is well
suited for portable radio and mobile satellite communication applications that require low
power consumption as well as low phase noise. Additional specifications for this product can
