San Diego, Calif. Z-Communications, Inc. targets mobile communications systems with its RoHS-compliant CLV1630A-LF voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) with ultra-low phase noise, wide tuning range and extended temperature range.
The CLV1630A-LF VCO uses patented design techniques to deliver single side band (SSB) phase noise of -111dBc/Hz at 10 kHz with a second harmonic suppression better than -15 dBc. Operating at 5 Vdc with a power consumption of 25 mA (typical), the VCO generates frequencies between 1593 and 1654 MHz within 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc of control voltage (tuning voltage).
This rugged VCO offers an average tuning sensitivity of 31 MHz/V, and is said to exhibit exceptional tuning linearity over the frequency band and the extended operating temperature range of -40° to 85°C. Packaged in a MINI surface-mount package, the CLV1630A-LF measures 0.50 x 0.50 x 0.16 inches. This VCO is suitable for automated surface-mount assembly and reflow.
Available on tape-and-reel packaging, the CLV1630A-LF VCO is priced at $24.95 each (5 piece minimum). Delivery is from stock to four weeks.
