2800-3075-MHz VCO offers linearity benefits

March 26, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Crystek has introduced the CVCO55CC-2800-3075 VCO which operates from 2800 MHz to 3075 MHz with a control voltage range of 1.0 V to 15 V and an output power that is typically +2 dBm.

The VCO features a typical phase noise of -104 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset and has excellent linearity.

The model CVCO55CC-2800-3075 is packaged in the industry-standard 0.5-inch x 0.5-inch SMD package. Input voltage is 5 V, with a maximum current consumption of 20 mA. Pulling and Pushing are minimized to 4.0 MHz and 2.0 MHz/V, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -15 dBc typical.

The CVCO55CC-2800-3075 is ideal for use in applications such as digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, and base stations.
