The new V600ME31-LF operates from 2700 to 5400 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0-24 Vdc. This octave tuning VCO features a typical phase noise of -107 dBc/Hz @ 100 kHz offset and an average tuning sensitivity of 140 MHz/V.
The V600ME31-LF is ideal for satellite communication applications. It is designed to deliver a typical output power of 7 dBm into a 50 ohm load while operating from a 5 Vdc supply and drawing only 25 mA. It is designed to operate over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85ºC while suppressing the second harmonic to better than -20 dBc. This robust VCO comes in Z-COMM's standard MINI-16-LOW package measuring 0.5 in. x 0.5 in. x 0.16 in.
