1 – 2 GHz voltage-controlled oscillator

July 14, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Crystek's CVCO55BE-1000-2000 VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) operates from 1000 MHz to 2000 MHz with a control voltage range of 1.0V~20V.

This VCO features a typical phase noise of -95 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is typically +5.5 dBm. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the CVCO55BE-1000-2000 is packaged in an industry-standard 0.5 x 0.5-in. (12.7-mm sq.) SMD package. Input voltage is 10V, with a max. current consumption of 25 mA. Pulling and pushing are minimised to 7.5 MHz and 2.5 MHz/V, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -10 dBc typical.

The CVCO55BE-1000-2000 is suitable for use in applications such as digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, and base stations.
