M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech) introduced a family of voltage controlled oscillators (VCO) with low phase noise and low DC current covering 5.7 to 14.2 GHz for the point-to-point radio market. The VCOs include a divide-by-two output and are housed in 5x5 mm, RoHS-compliant QFN packages. Depending on frequency, these VCOs provide exceptionally low phase noise performance as low as -117 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset and exhibit low performance variation over temperature.

“M/A-COM Tech is focused on expanding our product portfolio for point-to-point radio applications, and this VCO family is a significant step toward offering a complete MMIC set for transceiver lineups,” said Jack Redus, Product Manager. “These new VCOs provide perfect solutions for all point-to-point bands, using standard transceiver designs.”
