Crystek has launched the CVCO33BE-5200-5200 VCO that operates at 5200MHz with a control voltage of 0.5 to 4.5V. The VCO features a typical phase noise of -84dBc/Hz at 10kHz offset and has good linearity. It also features an output power of +3dBm. The VCO is available in a 0.5x0.5inch surface mount device package. It has an input voltage of 5V with a current consumption of 26mA. Pulling and pushing are minimised to 6MHz and 3MHz/V, respectively. The VCO features a second harmonic suppression of -20dBc typical. It is suitable for use in applications such as digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, and base stations.
