Z-Comm Intros Low Noise Dielectric Resonator SMT VCO at 8 GHz
April 17, 2013 Press Release
Low Noise Dielectric Resonator SMT VCO at 8 GHz
The new high performance
DRO8000A covers 8000 MHz
within a tuning voltage range of 0-12 Vdc and is ideal for the test and measurement market.
Utilizing dielectric resonator technology this VCO features a typical phase noise of -103 dBc/Hz
@ 10 kHz offset and an average tuning sensitivity of only 1 MHz/V.
low noise DRO8000A is
designed to deliver a typical output power of 3 dBm into a 50 ohm load while operating
from a 5 Vdc supply and drawing only 20 mA of current. It is designed to operate over
the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C while suppressing the second harmonic to better
than -40 dBc. The DRO8000A is further heightened by having a frequency drift of better than
±250ppm over temperature. This low powered VCO comes in Z-COMM's standard surface mount SDRO
package measuring 0.91 in. x 0.91 in. x 0.45 in.
