Z Comm CRO1200A-LF Low Phase Noise VCO
Z-Communications has introduced its new RoHS compliant VCO model CRO1200A-LF for high speed analogue to digital converters.
The CRO1200A-LF is designed to operate at 1200 MHz MHz within a tuning voltage range of 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc. This VCO features phase noise of -119 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 2 MHz/V.
The robust CRO1200A-LF provides the end user typical output power of -3.0 dBm into a 50Ω load while operating off a 5 Vdc supply and drawing 20 mA, typically, over the temperature range of -40 to 85º C.
This VCO features typical second harmonic suppression of -25 dBc and comes in Z-Comm's standard MINI-16-SM package measuring 0.5 in. x 0.5 in. x 0.22 in.
This low noise VCO is further heightened by pushing less than 0.5 MHz/V, with 5% change of the supply voltage, and pulling less than 0.5 MHz with a 12 dB return loss, any phase.
