New 2558-2575-MHz VCO offers phase noise and linearity benefits

April 10, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Crystek has released a Voltage Controlled Oscillator which operates from 2558 MHz to 2575 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.3 V to 4.7 V.

The CVCO55CC-2558-2575 VCO features a typical phase noise of -120 dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz offset and claims excellent linearity.

It is engineered and manufactured in the US and is packaged in the industry-standard 0.5-in. x 0.5-in. SMD package. Input voltage is 8 V, with a max. 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 CVCO55CC-2558-2575 is ideal for use in applications such as digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, and base stations.
