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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

December 14, 2015: Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model USSP1730-LF in the L-band. The USSP1730-LF operates from 1715 to 1745 MHz within a tuning voltage range of 1 to 4 Vdc. This remarkable VCO features phase noise of -94 dBc/Hz @ 10kHz offset while operating off a 5 Vdc supply and typically drawing only 19 mA of current.
The low cost USSP1730-LF provides the end user a nominal output power of 3.5 dBm into a 50Ω load while operating over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85ºC. This high performing VCO suppresses the second harmonic to better than -25 dBc and delivers a linearity of 1.1:1 across the band. Making the USSP1730-LF even more attractive is its mere size. It comes in Z-COMM’s standard USSP package measuring only 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.
The USSP1730-LF is well suited for satellite communication applications that require low power consumption as well as low phase noise and extremely small size.
