Crystek Corp. introduced its CVCO55CC-2900-3400 VCO that operates from 2,900 MHz to 3,400 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5V to 18V. The VCO features a typical phase noise of -107 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset, and it has optimal linearity. It is packaged in the industry standard 0.5" × 0.5" SMD package. Input voltage is 8.0V, with a maximum current consumption of 35 mA. Pulling and pushing are minimized to 0.5 MHz and 1.0 MHz/V, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -16 dBc typical. The VCO is suitable for use in digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems and base stations.
