New VCO Features Low Power Consumption
Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model SMV2950A-LF in the S-band. The SMV2950A-LF operates at 2850 to 3050 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0 to 2.5 Vdc. This compact VCO features phase noise of -85 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset while operating off a 3.0Vdc supply and typically drawing 15mA of current.
The SMV12950A-LF provides the end user typical output power of 3±3 dBm into a 50Ω load while operating over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85º C. This robust VCO suppresses the second harmonic to better than -15 dBc and covers the frequency range with a tuning linearity of better than 1.1:1. The SMV2950A-LF comes in Z-Comm's standard SUB-L package measuring a mere 0.3 in. x 0.3 in. x 0.08 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements making it ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow. The SMV2950A-LF is well suited for mobile radio and test instrumentation applications that require minimal power consumption as well as low phase noise.
