Z-Communications, represented by RF Parts Australia , have released the new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage-Controlled Oscillator) model CRO0410A-LF in UHF band. The VCO model CRO0410A-LF operates from 390MHz to 430 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0.5V to 4.5V DC. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -117dBc/Hz at 10kHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 17MHz/V.
The VCO model CRO0410A-LF is designed to deliver a typical output power of -4dBm at 5V DC supply while drawing 36mA (typical) over the temperature range of -30ºC to 70º C. The VCO features typical 2nd harmonic suppression of -15dBc and comes in Z-Communication’s industry standard MINI-16 package measuring 0.5 inch x 0.5 inch x 0.22 inch.
The VCO model CRO0410A-LF is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements. The VCO model CRO0410A-LF is also suitable for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
The VCO model CRO0410A-LF is suitable for base station and portable radio applications that require ultra low phase noise performance.
