Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant Voltage Controlled Oscillator model USSP2350-LF for mobile communication system applications where low power consumption and small package size are critical. The USSP2350-LF covers the frequency range of 2300-2400 MHz in 0.5 to 3.0V of tuning voltage. This high performance VCO comes available in a compact surface mount package measuring a mere 0.2 x 0.2 x 0.04 while operating off 2.7V and drawing only 6mA, typically.
The USSP2350-LF provides a spectral purity of -82dBc/Hz, typically, at 10kHz from the carrier and is designed to operate over the commercial temperature range of -20 to 70°C. This ultra miniature VCO delivers 0±4dBm of output power into a 50 ohm load and suppresses the 2nd harmonic to better than -13dBc. The USSP2350-LF will not only augment any mobile radio system specification due to its low power consumption, but will further enhance any PLL design due to its 1.1:1 linearity over frequency and temperature. This remarkable new VCO is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements. It is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
