Compact miniature VCO for 2.4GHz ISM from Z-Comms
Z-Communications has announced the RoHS compliant, compact miniature VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model USSP2400-LF. The USSP2400-LF operates from 2,400 to 2,485MHz within the tuning voltage range of 0.5 to 2.5Vdc.
This high performance VCO is available in an ultra-compact USSP package measuring only 0.2x0.2x0.04“. and conserves precious energy by typically consuming less than 18mW. The USSP2400-LF is designed to operate off a 2.7Vdc supply and drawing only 6mA of current.
The USSP2400-LF features phase noise performance of -83 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset and delivers typically -1.5 dBm of output power into a 50 ohm load. This unequalled VCO provides exceptional linearity across the frequency range and is guaranteed to operate over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C making it suitable for the harshest of conditions.
This low powered USSP2400-LF suppresses the second harmonic to better than -15 dBc, and is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements making it ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
The USSP2400-LF is well suited for those 2.4GHz ISM battery-operated compact communication radio systems requiring small size and exceptional performance.
