Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new VCO model CRO3060A-LF. The CRO3060A-LF operates at 3050 to 3070MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0.5 to 4.5Vdc. This innovative VCO features a spectrally clean signal of -115dBc/Hz @ 10kHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 14MHz/V.
The RoHS compliant CRO3060A-LF is designed to deliver +4dBm of output power into a 50Ω load while operating off a 5Vdc supply and drawing only 20mA of current. This low noise VCO operates over the extended commercial temperature range of -40 to 85ºC. The CRO3060A-LF features typical second harmonic suppression of -8dBc and comes in Z-Comm’s standard, MINI-16-SM package measuring 0.5 in. x 0.5 in. x 0.22 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements making it ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
The CRO3060A-LF is well suited for fixed wireless equipment looking for optimum noise performance and low power constraints.
