VCO with low phase-noise

30 March 2011 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Newly released by Z-Communications is an RoHS compliant VCO (voltage-controlled oscillator) model V846ME30-LF, operating at 3350-4550 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0-20 V d.c. It features a typical phase noise of -85 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 120 MHz/V, making it well suited for microwave radio and fixed wireless applications that require low phase-noise performance.

The device is designed to deliver a typical output power of 4 dBm at 5 V d.c. supply while drawing 25 mA over the temperature range of -20°C to 70°C. It features typical second harmonic suppression of -15 dBc and comes in the MINI-16-L package measuring 12,7 x 12,7 x 3,3 mm. The VCO is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements and is suitable for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
