Challenged to develop a miniature voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) with comparable performance to larger packages, Crystek Crystals Corp. launched its smallest VCO package.

Measuring 6.35-by-6.35-by-2mm, the tiny CVCO25 oscillator provides excellent electrical performance, and generates frequencies from 100MHz to 1GHz. Higher frequency capability is under development.

The CVCO25 provides reliable performance in an operating temperature range of -40C to 85C, which is suited to industrial environments. The CVC025 family offers a variety of power supply voltages including 3V, 3.3V and 5V. Typical phase noise performance at 1GHz is -105dBc/Hz at 10KHz offset.

Applications include digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, base stations, personal communications systems, portable radios and test instruments. Pricing for the CVCO25 is $11.25 in quantities of 1,000.
