Voltage controlled oscillator covers 1000 MHz to 2000 MHz

July 14, 2014 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
The CVCO55BE-1000-2000 VCO from Crystek operates from 1000 MHz to 2000 MHz with a control voltage range of 1.0 V to 20 V.

This VCO features a typical phase noise of -95 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is typically +5.5 dBm. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the model CVCO55BE-1000-2000 is packaged in the industry-standard 0.5-inch x 0.5-inch (1.27- x 1.27-cm. SMD package.

Input voltage is 10 V, with a maximum current consumption of 25 mA. Pulling and Pushing are minimized to 7.5 MHz and 2.5 MHz/V, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -10 dBc typical.
