Fort Myers, Fla. Crystek Crystals Corp. has introduced a new line of high-performance voltage controlled oscillators (VCOs) in a standard 0.5 inch x 0.5 inch SMD package.
The CVCO55BE-2974-3274 VCO generates frequencies between 2.974 GHz and 3.274 GHz with a control voltage range of 0.5 Vdc to 4.5 Vdc. The device offers low phase noise performance of -70 dBc/Hz at 1 kHz offset, -98 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset, -120 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset and
-155 dBc/Hz at 10 MHz offset.
The VCO exhibits an output power of 5±3 dBm into a 50-ohm load. It offers an extended temperature operating range of -40°C to 85°C, with exceptional linearity over frequency and temperature range, said the company.
Applications include digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, base stations, personal communications systems, portable radios, and test instruments.
Pricing for the CVCO55BE-2974-3274 VCO starts at $12.95 each in quantities of 1,000.
