Components: Voltage-Controlled Oscillators Span 50-MHz To 3.5-GHz Range

The CVC055, CVC045, and CVC03 voltage-controlled oscillators cover respective frequency ranges from 50 MHz up to 3.5 GHz, 2 GHz, and 2 GHz. They measure 0.500 by 0.500 by 0.140 in., 0.400 by 0.496 by 0.165 in., and 0.300 by 0.300 by 0.078 in., respectively. Harmonic suppression and phase noise is down to −115 dBc/Hz. They're also available in wide bandwidth (doubling of frequency) and extended operating-temperature ranges (−40°C to 85°C). Applications include digital radios, fixed wireless access, satellite communications, basestations, test instruments, personal communications, and portable radios. In quantities of 1000 units, prices are $11 to $18, $7.50 to $10, and $8 to $11, respectively.
