August 15, 2014

Crystek's CVCO55FL-0200-0239 VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) operates from 200 to 239 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5 to 4.5 V. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -123 dBc/Hz @ 10KHz offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is typically +8.5 dBm. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the model CVCO55FL-0200-0239 is packaged in the industry-standard 0.5 x 0.5 in. SMD package. Input voltage is 5 V, with a max. current consumption of 25 mA. Pulling and pushing are minimized to 0.5 MHz and 0.5 MHz/V, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -20 dBc typical.
