Coaxial resonator oscillator with internal proprietary frequency doubler

March 10, 2014 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Crystek’s latest CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 coaxial resonator oscillator (CRO) is a coaxial-based VCO with an internal proprietary frequency doubler.

The device’s frequency doubling, 2X fundamental technology reaches new performance levels of lower phase noise and much lower harmonics over the competition, while achieving lower current consumption in the process. The coaxial resonator oscillator operates from 6000 to 6075 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0.5 Vdc to 4.5 Vdc.

This coaxial VCO features a typical phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset and has good linearity. The CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 CRO exhibits an output power of 5 dBm typical into a 50 ohm load with a supply of +8.0 Vdc and a current consumption of 25 mA (maximum).
