Z-Communications, represented by RF Parts Australia , have announced a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage-Controlled Oscillator) model CRO1220A-LF in L-band. The CRO1220A-LF operates at 1220 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0V to 5V DC. This VCO features a typical phase noise of 118dBc/Hz at 10KHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 2MHz/V.
The CRO1220A-LF is designed to deliver a typical output power of 3dBm at 5V DC supply while drawing 18mA (typical) over the temperature range of 0ºC to 70ºC. This VCO features typical 2nd harmonic suppression of -24dBc and comes in Z-Communications' industry standard MINI-16 package measuring 0.5 inches x 0.5 inches x 0.22 inches.
The CRO1220A-LF is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements. The CRO1220A-LF is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow. The CRO1220A-LF is suitable for satellite communication and microwave radio applications that require ultra low phase noise performance.
