VCO: CRO6800Z-LF Features Superior Phase Noise for a 6.8GHz Clock Source

Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model CRO6800Z-LF. The CRO6800Z-LF operates at 6800 MHz within a tuning voltage range of 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc. This high performance VCO features a remarkably clean spectral signal of -104 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 18 MHz/V.

The CRO6800Z-LF is designed to deliver +5 dBm of output power into a 50Ω load while operating off a 5 Vdc supply and drawing typically 69 mA of current. This unmatched VCO operates over the extended commercial temperature range of -40 to 85°C. The low noise CRO6800Z-LF features a typical fundamental rejection of -35 dBc and second harmonic suppression of -40 dBc, and comes in Z-Comm's standard VCO-24H package measuring 0.86 in. x 0.63 in. x 0.22 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements making it ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.

The CRO6800Z-LF is well suited for satellite communication applications that require an extremely low phase noise clock source.
