Z-Communications Inc. has released a RoHS-compliant voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) in the L-band. The CLV1570B-LF is well suited for microwave radio applications that require superior 2nd harmonic suppression and ultralow-phase noise performance.

The CLV1570B-LF operates from 1,560-1,580MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0.5-4.5Vdc. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -108dBc/Hz at 10kHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 25MHz/V.

The CLV1570B-LF is designed to operate at 5Vdc supply while drawing 24mA (typical) over the temperature range of -40to 85C. This VCO features typical 2nd harmonic suppression of -25dBc and comes in Z-Comm's industry standard MINI package measuring 0.5-inch x 0.5-inch x 0.13-inch. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements. The CLV1570B-LF is also suitable for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.

Pricing starts at $24.95 for quantities 5-49.
