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 ...

Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage-Controlled Oscillator) model SMV4350A-LF in the C-band. The SMV4350A-LF operates from 4345 to 4355 MHz within a tuning voltage range of 1 to 4 Vdc. This low cost VCO features phase noise performance of -110 dBc/Hz @ 100 kHz offset and covers the frequency range with an average sensitivity of 50 MHz/V.
The SMV4350A-LF is designed to deliver -0.5±2.5 dBm of output power into a 50 Ω load while operating over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C. This high performance VCO is further enhanced by saving precious energy. It consumes 20 mA of current while operating off a 5.0 Vdc supply. The SMV4350A-LF features a typical 2nd harmonic suppression of -25 dBc and comes in Z-Comm's industry standard SUB-L package measuring 0.3 in. x 0.3 in. x 0.08 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements. The SMV4350A-LF is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
The SMV4350A-LF is well suited for mobile applications that require exceptional phase noise performance without compromising a significant amount of space. Additional specifications for this product can be found on-line at: www.zcomm.com
