The SMV0912B-LF from Z-COMM is a VCO that operates from 865 to 960 MHz. It delivers 3 dBm of output power into a 50Ω load with a low phase noise of -100 dBc/ Hz @ 10 kHz offset. The VCO has a tuning voltage range from 0 to 2.5 Vdc with an average sensitivity of 80 MHz/V. It features a 2nd harmonic suppression of -10 dBc and consumes 6 mA of current while operating from a 3.0 Vdc supply.
The SMV0912B-LF is available in Z-COMM’s industry-standard SUB-L package measuring 0.3 x 0.3 x 0.08 inches. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements and is ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow. This RoHS-compliant device is ideal for mobile communication applications that require exceptional phase noise performance and low power consumption.
