Z-Communications, represented by RF Parts Australia , announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage-Controlled Oscillator) model SMV1205C-LF in L-band. The SMV1205C-LF operates at 1185-1225 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0.5-2.8 Vdc. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -103 dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 54 MHz/V.
The SMV1205C-LF is designed to deliver a typical output power of 0.75 dBm at 3.3 Vdc supply while drawing 12 mA (typical) over the temperature range of -40º to 85º C. This VCO features typical 2nd harmonic suppression of -17 dBc and comes in Z-Comm’s industry standard SUB-L package measuring 0.3 in. x 0.3 in. x 0.08 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements. The SMV1205C-LF is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
SMV1205C-LF is well suited for digital cellular and test equipment applications that require ultra low phase noise performance. For additional specifications of this product or any other VCO/PLL product from Z Communications please contact RF Parts.
