VCO: CRO5100Z Features Superior 2nd Harmonic

SAN DIEGO, December 2, 2008: Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new VCO (Voltage-Controlled Oscillator) model CRO5100Z in C-band. The CRO5100Z operates from 5090-5110 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0.5-4.5 Vdc. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -104 dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 20 MHz/V.

The CRO5100Z is designed to deliver a typical output power of 3 dBm at 5 Vdc supply while drawing 118 mA (typical, due to the internal doubler) over the temperature range of 0º to 85º C. This VCO features superior 2nd harmonic suppression of -40 dBc (typical) and comes in Z-Comm's industry standard VCO-24H package measuring 0.63 in. x 0.866 in. x 0.22 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements. The CRO5100Z is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.

CRO5100Z is well suited for microwave radio applications that require superior 2nd harmonic suppression and ultra low phase noise performance. Additional specifications for this product can be found on-line at
