Low Cost CRO VCO in MINI Package Delivers Exceptional Phase Noise at 6.55GHz
The new CRO6550X2-LF utilizes a doubled CRO oscillator design to cover 6550 MHz within a tuning window of 0.3 to 4.7 Vdc. This ceramic resonator VCO features exceptionally low phase noise of -102dBc/Hz @ 10kHz and better than -125dBc/Hz at 100kHz offset. Besides the spectral purity, making the CRO6550X2-LF even more remarkable is that it is available in Z-COMM’s standard MINI-16-SM package measuring 0.5 in. x 0.5 in. x 0.22 in.
The CRO6550X2-LF is well suited for satellite communication systems requiring unmatched performance levels. This low cost VCO is configured to deliver output power of 0±4dBm into a 50 ohm load and covers the operating frequency with a low Kvco figure of 10 MHz/V all while guaranteed to operate over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C. It is specified to run off a 8.0 Vdc supply while drawing only 25 mA of current. The CRO6550X2-LF suppresses both the ½ and 2nd harmonic to better than -22dBc while limiting pulling to less than 2 MHz. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements.
