VCO Provides -110 dBc/Hz Phase Noise At 10 kHz

Operating over the frequency range of 2620 to 2710 MHz, the CVCO55CC-2620-2710 voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) requires a control voltage range of 0.5 to 4.5 V. This VCO typically features phase noise of -110 dBc/Hz at 10-kHz offset from the carrier. It delivers typical output power of +3 dBm. Input voltage is 5 V with maximum current consumption of 40 mA. The VCO minimizes pulling and pushing to 1.5 MHz and 1.5 MHz/V, respectively. It offers second harmonic suppression of typically -15 dBc. The oscillator is designed for a load impedance of 50 O with input capacitance of 22 pF. Tuning sensitivity is typically 34 MHz/V. The device is specified for operation from -40 to +85C. The CVCO55CC-2620-2710 is well suited for applications like digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite-communications systems, and base stations. It comes in a 0.5-x-0.5-in. SMD package.
