Synergy Microwave has developed a line of voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs) optimized for use over specific bandwidths. An example of the new line is model DXO810900-10, which tunes from 8100 to 9000 MHz with tuning voltages of 0.5 to 24.0 V. The oscillator delivers at least -2 dBm output power with -84 dBc/Hz phase noise offset 10 kHz from the carrier and typical harmonic suppression of 35 dB. The surface-mount VCO measures just 0.3 x 0.3 inches and draws 35 mA maximum current from a +10-VDC supply.
