Original Press Release:

4.55 GHz CRO VCO with Exceptional Phase Noise in MINI Package

Broomfield, Colorado - June 23, 2020 - The new CRO4550X2-LF utilizes a doubled CRO oscillator design to cover the operating frequency of 4550 MHz within a tuning window of 0.5-4.5 Vdc. This new ceramic resonator VCO features incredible phase noise of -110 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset and is available in Z-COMM's standard MINI-16-SM package measuring 0.5 in. x 0.5 in. x 0.22 in.

The CRO4550X2-LF is well suited for satellite communication systems requiring optimal spectral purity. This unmatched VCO is configured to deliver a nominal output power of 3.5 dBm into a 50 ohm load and covers the operating frequency with a low Kvco figure of 8 MHz/V all while operating over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C. It is specified to run off a 5.0 Vdc supply while drawing only 30 mA of current. The CRO4550X2-LF suppresses both the ½ and 2nd harmonic to better than -20dBc while limiting pulling to less than 1 MHz. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements.
