Boasting of a broad reference frequency range, the RF2506 low-power BiCMOS voltage-controlled oscillator is suited for use in a wide range of systems, such as license-free ISM Band applications, cordless phones, and broadband radio systems. The device replaces discrete designs or VCO modules with an 8-pin monolithic IC. It operates from a 2.7V to 3.6V supply and provides a reference frequency from 10 MHz to 1 GHz. It contains a phase noise of -110 dBc and its digitally-controlled power-down pin reduces current requirements to less than 1 µA in standby mode. Offered in a SOP-8 package, the VCO costs $0.76 each/10,000. Fully assembled evaluation boards are also available.
