VCO covers 183 to 219 MHz with a 0.5 to 4.5 V control range

November 19, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Crystek's CVCO55FL-0183-0219 voltage controlled oscillator operates from 183 to 219 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5 V to 4.5 V.

This VCO features a typical phase noise of -123 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is typically +8.5 dBm. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the model CVCO55FL-0183-0219 is packaged in the industry-standard 12.7 x 12.7 mm SMD package.

Input voltage is 5 V, with a maximum current consumption of 25 mA. Pulling and Pushing are minimized to 0.5 MHz and 0.5 MHz/V, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -20 dBc typical.
