San Jose, Calif.Phase Matrix Inc. has introduced four wideband voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) modules for test and measurement, microwave communications, military and industrial applications covering 3 to 15 GHz.
The VTO-4500-67T, VTO-7500-40M, VTO-10500-29M and VTO-13500-22M wideband VCO modules provide frequency coverage from 3 to 6 GHz, 6 to 9 GHz, 9 to 12 GHz and 12 to 15 GHz, respectively, and feature an integrated buffer amplifier for increased output power and load isolation. The VCO modules offer phase noise performance of -95 dBc/Hz at 100-kHz.
The VTO-4500-67T, VTO-7500-40M, VTO-10500-29M and VTO-13500-22M wideband VCO modules are available in industry standard TO-8 package or a coaxial output package.
They use silicon bipolar transistor technology and silicon hyper-abrupt varactor diodes, offering sub-microsecond frequency settling time. DC tuning voltages range from 0 to +20V. Modulation bandwidths are better than 20 MHz.
The VCOs are housed in hermetically sealed modules, which meet stringent military assembly requirements.
