VCO Demonstrates Low Phase Noise
Operating in a frequency range from 5,340 MHz to 5,390 MHZ, Crystek’s CVCO55CXT-5340-5390 VCO exhibits a typical phase noise of -102 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset. The 0.5” × 0.5” SMT component presents typical output power of 3 dBm, a control voltage range from 0.5 V to ~4.5 V, input voltage of 5 V, and maximum current consumption of 25 mA. The oscillator shows pulling and pushing of 0.5 MHz and 1.5 MHz/V, respectively, and typical second harmonic suppression of -30 dBc. Applications include digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, and base stations. Pricing starts at $21.43 each.
