Crystek Corp. has designed the CVCOT8BE-2400-2500 TO-8 VCO that operates from 2400 to 2500 MHz and provides high performance frequency control in harsh, demanding environments. The VCO features a typical phase noise of -101 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset and excellent linearity. Tuning sensitivity is rated at 55 MHz/V. Pulling and pushing are minimized to 11 MHz and 1 MHz/V, respectively; second harmonic suppression is -15 dBc typical.

The CVCOT8BE line features a full-functioning VCO in a rugged, hermetically sealed TO-8 package to protect the VCO from moisture, contaminants and other elements. The metal-can construction features gold-plated pins with no internal wire bonds for enhanced signal integrity. They are sealed in a nitrogen atmosphere with a dew point of -60°C or lower for a true -55°C storage temperature. The VCO line has an operating temperature range of -40° to +85°C

Given the hermetically sealed construction, the CVCOT8 VCO is ideally suited for military and aerospace applications where high temperature/moisture/altitude elements are of concern. Customers can request Class B screening or any additional requirements in terms of specifications, testing and performance reports. At present, the CVCOT8 family is available from 800 MHz to 4 GHz in bands. Custom designs are also available.

Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the CVCOT8BE-2400-2500 VCO features a control voltage range of 0.5 to ~4.5 V with an input voltage of 5 V. Maximum current consumption is 25 mA and output power is +0 dBm.
