VCSO Exhibits Low Phase Noise
Offering a typical second harmonic of -14 dBc and no sub-harmonic, Crystek’s CVS575S-500 500-MHz voltage controlled surface acoustic wave (SAW) oscillator (VCSO) generates a phase noise level of -135 dBc/Hz at an offset of 10 KHz. The 5 × 6.5 × 2.5-mm Pb-free SMT-packaged device operates from a 3.3-V power supply in a temperature range from -20°C to 70°C. The RoHS-compliant VCSO is well suited for applications including point-to-point and multi-point radios, test and measurement, frequency translation and avionics. Pricing starts at $45 each in volume.
