M/A-COM Technology Solutions Introduces Family of Low Phase Noise VCOs Covering 5.7 to 14.2 GHz for Point-to-Point Radio Market. Low current consumption VCOs deliver greater than 10% bandwidth.

Lowell, MA, April 23, 2010 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech) introduced today a family of voltage controlled oscillators (VCOs) 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.”

Engineering samples, sample boards and production devices are available today from stock. Technical support is also available from M/A-COM Tech’s applications engineers at 978.656.2539.
