Crystek Introduces 500 to 1000 MHz RedBox VCO
Crystek's CRBV55CW-0500-1000 RedBox voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) operates from 500 to 1000 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5 to 18.0 V. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -104 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is typically +7 dBm.
Crystek’s RedBox line comprises VCOs enclosed in a robust aluminum enclosure (1.25” x 1.25” x 0.58”) with SMA connectors, enhancing the VCO’s durability and making integration of a VCO into any application an easy, plug-and-play option.
Engineered and manufactured in the US, the model CRBV55CW-0500-1000 features an input voltage of 12 V, with a maximum current consumption of 20 mA. Pulling and Pushing are minimized to 4 MHz and 2 MHz/V, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -5 dBc typical.
The CRBV55CW-0500-1000 RedBox VCO is ideal for use in applications such as telecommunications, computers, radio equipment, base stations and other electronic applications.
