RFMD® Introduces Highly Integrated, Multi-Use VCO for Military, Satcom and Industrial Markets
Jeff Shealy, VP and general manager of RFMD’s Defense and Power business unit, said, “We are pleased to release the RFVC1800 and introduce RFMD’s new family of broadband VCOs. The highly integrated RFVC1800 draws upon RFMD’s hybrid VCO design expertise to deliver a broadband, miniaturized MMIC VCO solution targeting performance- driven RF requirements.”
By integrating the buffer amplifier and resonator and providing a single 5V supply, the RFVC1800 VCO reduces component count, streamlines engineering and promotes ease-of-use for global customers. Additionally, by delivering excellent phase noise performance and broadband capabilities, the RFVC1800 provides a highly integrated multi-purpose VCO solution that meets or exceeds the stringent design requirements of engineers across multiple RF applications. Manufactured on RFMD’s Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) Heterojunction Bipolar Transistor (HBT) process and packaged in a small 4 x 4 mm QFN package, the RFVC1800 broadband VCO is optimized for use in radar, military communications, satellite communications, test instrumentation and industrial/medical applications.
Samples of the RFVC1800 VCO are available immediately and product revenue is expected in the September 2009 quarter.
RFMD is exhibiting at the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium 2009, June 9-11, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Boston, MA, in Booth 2412.
