The OA2CP12001 from Teledyne Microwave Solutions is a Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) that operates from 8 to 12 GHz. It delivers an output power of 17 dBm with SSB phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz at a 100 kHz offset. The oscillator has a tuning voltage from 0 to -12 V and has a tuning sensitivity of 280 to 630 MHz/V. It has spurious levels of -60 dBc and harmonics of better than -35 dBc. This VCO has an integrated voltage regulator, MMIC amplifier, and output filter. It requires a DC supply of 15 V and consumes 220 mA of current. The OA2CP12001 is available in a standard two-stage CougarPak® SMA package that measures 29.85 x 14.61 x 8.4 cm.
