FORT MYERS, Fla., 31 March 2014. Crystek Corp. in Fort Myers, Fla., is introducing the CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 coaxial resonator oscillator (CRO) for digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, base stations, and other RF and microwave equipment.

The CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 is a coaxial-based voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) with an internal proprietary frequency doubler. The CVCO55CXT family's frequency doubling, 2X fundamental technology offers low phase noise and low harmonics while achieving low current consumption.

The CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 operates from 6000 to 6075 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0.5 to 4.5 volts DC. This coaxial VCO features a typical phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset and has good linearity.

The CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 CRO exhibits an output power of 5 dBm typical into a 50 ohm load with a supply of 8 volts DC and a maximum current consumption of 25 milliamps.

Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 CRO is packaged in the industry-standard 0.5-in x 0.5-in package. Pushing and Pulling are both minimized to 1.5 MHz/V and 0.5 MHz, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -30 dBc typical.
