April 10, 2012 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Crystek's CVCO55CC-2558-2575 VCO operates from 2558 MHz to 2575 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.3 V to 4.7 V. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -120 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is typically +8 dBm.

Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the model CVCO55CC-2558-2575 is packaged in the industry-standard 0.5-inch x 0.5-inch SMD package. Input voltage is 8 V, with a maximum current consumption of 29 mA. Pulling and Pushing are minimized to 2.0 MHz and 0.2 MHz/V, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -15 dBc typical.

The VCO is ideal for use in applications such as digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, and base stations.
