The SMV1220A-LF from Z-COMM is a low cost RoHS compliant VCO that operates from 1170 MHz to 1270 MHz. It has a tuning voltage range of 0.8 to 4.2 Vdc and features phase noise performance of -100 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset and covers the frequency range with an average sensitivity of 75 MHz/V and 1.1:1 linearity. The SMV1220A-LF is designed to deliver 3±3 dBm of output power into a 50Ω load while operating over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C. This low cost VCO is further enhanced by saving precious energy. It consumes 20 mA of current while operating off a 5 V supply. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements. The SMV1220A-LF is also ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
