VCO for RF functions equivalent to digital radios, SATCOM and base stations from Crystek

FORT MYERS, Florida – Crystek Corp. in Fort Myers, Florida, introduces the voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) CVCO55CC-3950-3950 for RF and microwave applications such as digital radios, fixed wireless access, satellite communications (SATCOM). Systems and base stations.

The HF and microwave device operates at 3950 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5 to 4.5 volts. This VCO is characterized by a typical phase noise of -111 dBc / Hz at 10 kHz offset and excellent linearity. The output power is typically 4.5 dBm.

The US-designed and manufactured model CVCO55CC-3950-3950 is packaged in an industry standard 0.5 x 0.5 inch SMD package and is intended for digital radios, fixed wireless access, satellite communication systems (SATCOM) and base stations.

The input voltage is 5 volts with a maximum current consumption of 36 milliamperes. Pulling and pushing are minimized to 1 MHz peak-to-peak and 1 MHz per volt, respectively. The suppression of the second harmonic is typically -20 dBc.
