Posted by John McHaleFORT MYERS, Fla., 16 April 2011. Engineers at Crystek released a new voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) -- the CVCO55CC-2515-2530, which operates from 2,515 to 2,530 megahertz and is targeted at applications such as digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, and base stations.It has a control voltage range of 0.3 volts to 4.7 volts. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -116 decibels relative to the carrier per hertz @ 10 kilohertz offset with strong linearity. Output power is typically +4.5 power ratio in decibel referenced to one milliwatt.The model CVCO55CC-2515-2530 is packaged in the industry-standard 0.5 by 0.5-inch SMD package. Input voltage is 5 volts, with a maximum current consumption of 40 mA. Pulling and pushing are minimized to 1.0 mergahertz and 0.2 megahertz per volt, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -25 decibels relative to the carrier typical. For more information visit www.crystek.com.
