Fort Myers, Fla. Crystek has introduced a voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) that operates from 1 GHz to 2 GHz with a control voltage range of 1 V to 20 V. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset and is said to deliver excellent linearity.
The model CVCO55CW-1000-2000 is packaged in the industry standard 0.5 x 0.5-in. SMD package. Input voltage is 10.0 V, with a maximum current consumption of 25 mA. Pulling and Pushing are minimized to 8.0 MHz and 2.5 MHz/V, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -10 dBc typical.
The CVCO55CW-1000-2000 is suitable for applications such as digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, and base stations.
Pricing: $10.39 each in volume.
