From Z-Communications Inc. comes a Pb-free, RoHS-compliant, narrow-band coaxial resonator oscillator in the L band (1,898-1,902MHz). The CRO1900B-LF VCO touts extremely low-phase noise and high-output power for digital radio and fixed wireless applications.

The CRO1900B-LF VCO offers an ultralow phase noise performance of -121dBc/Hz at 10kHz offset. This unique design offers a linear tuning sensitivity of 6MHz/V (typ) and covers the band between 0.5-4.5V. It is designed to deliver 8dBm output power (typ) at 8Vdc supply while drawing 41mA (typ) over the operating temperature range of -15C to 65C.

The CRO1900B-LF comes in Z-Comm's industry-standard MINI package measuring 0.50-inch x 0.5-inch x 0.22-inch. This VCO is for automated surface-mount assembly and reflow. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements.
