Continuing to expand the frequency range of its high-performance voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) lines, Crystek Crystals Corp. has added a new 5GHz model in a 1.27-by-1.27cm standard surface-mount package to its CVCO55 family.

The CVCO55BH-5256-5356 VCO generates a frequency range of 5,256MHz to 5,356MHz with a tuning voltage range of 1- to 4Vdc. They can be used in a variety of applications including digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, and basestations.

Key features include a low phase noise performance of -86dBc/Hz at 10kHz offset typical and excellent linearity throughout its tuning range. Model CVCO55BH-5256-5356 exhibits an output power of 02dBm into a 50-ohm load with a supply of 5Vdc and a typical current consumption of 25mA. Push and pull specs are minimized to 5MHz/V and 4MHz, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is rated at -10dBc typical.

Pricing for the CVCO55BH-5256-5356 starts at $14.80 each in volume.
