FORT MYERS, Fla., 11 Dec. 2014. Crystek Corp. in Fort Myers, Fla., is introducing the CVCO55FL-0183-0219 voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) for RF and microwave applications such as digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications (SATCOM) systems, and base stations.

The VCO operates from 183 MHz to 219 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5 to 4.5 volts. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -123 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset and output power typically of +8.5 dBm.

Engineered and manufactured in the U.S., the model CVCO55FL-0183-0219 is packaged in the industry-standard 0.5-by-0.5-inch SMD package. Input voltage is 5 volts, with a typical current consumption of 25 milliamps.

Pulling and Pushing are minimized to 0.5 MHz and 0.5 MHz/V, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -20 dBc typical. For more information contact Crystek online at www.crystek.com.
