The VCO1212BQ-400MHz-800MHz-A from Dynamic Engineers is a Surface-mount Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) that operates from 400 to 800 MHz. It delivers an output power of 5 dBm and has a phase noise of -118dBc/Hz @ 100 kHz. The VCO has a pushing figure of 5 MHz/V and a pulling figure of 5 MHz. It requires a DC supply of 5 V and consumes of up to 30 mA of current. The VCO offers ultra-low phase noise, linear tuning characteristics, and a low pushing/pulling figure. It is available in a surface-mount package that measures 12.7 x 12.7 x 3.9 mm and is ideal for broadcast, VHF radio, wireless telemetry, test instruments, and signal generation applications.
