Hittite Microwave Corp. has extended its line of GaAs HBT MMIC (monolithic microwave IC) voltage-controlled oscillators (VCO) with fundamental, half and quarter frequency outputs. These VCOs are designed for microwave radio, test equipment, military and industrial sensor applications from 11.5GHz to 14.9GHz.

The HMC515LP5E, HMC529LP5E and HMC531LP5E VCOs tune from 11.5GHz to 12.5GHz, 12.4GHz to 13.4GHz, and 13.6GHz to 14.9GHz, respectively. They are housed in RoHS-compliant, 5-by-5mm Pb-free SMT packages with a common pinout. In addition, the VCOs integrate resonators, negative resistance devices and varactor diodes, and feature fundamental, half and quarter frequency outputs.

The new family of fully-integrated VCOs requires no external components, provides output power of 7dBm to 10dBm, and delivers SSB phase noise of -110dBc/Hz at 100kHz offset.

Samples and evaluation PC boards for all SMT packaged products are already available.
