United States

Z-Communications, Inc. (Z-Comm) is a world leading manufacturer of surface mount VCO (voltage-controlled oscillator) modules & PLL (phase-locked loop) frequency synthesizers for commercial RF & wireless markets for over two decades. Having set the de-facto standard in microwave VCO technology, Z-Comm provides over 1,000 COTS, high-quality signal source products that operate within the range of 40MHz to 15GHz. These specially designed VCO’s are suitable for narrow and octave tuning bandwidth requirements and are housed in package sizes as small as 0.2” x 0.2” x 0.04”. The PLLs come available in integer, fractional-N & fixed frequency (pre-programmed) oscillators that can be phase locked to an internal or external reference.

Z-Comm has also recently introduced a new line of RF amplifier products operating in the K-band. These high gain amplifiers come in a connectorized package making them ideal for lab usage or needing quick integration assembly. The RF amplifiers, along with the VCOs & PLLs, are customizable for new design requirements and can be created quickly with Z-Comm’s well equipped R&D and manufacturing facility which has been certified to the ISO 9001:2008 standard.   

These products are intended for a wide range of systems in the commercial and industrial marketplace. They include applications such as test & measurement, satellite communications systems, broadband transmission equipment, point-to-point radios, handheld radios, and radar systems.

Another Major Breakthrough in VCO Technology

December 01, 2008
Modern digital communication systems using complex modulations such as Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) or Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) require controlling bit error rate (BER) in order to achieve a given signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The achievable BER is a function of many system parameters. Most important among them is... Read More
