Model USSP1217-LF is a RoHS-compliant voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) designed for L-band applications from 1210 to 1230 MHz. It tunes with voltages from 0.5 to 3.0 VDC and tuning linearity of better than 1.1:1. It delivers output power of +3 dBm across the frequency range, with ±3-dB flatness, and exhibits phase noise of -102 dBc/Hz offset 10 kHz from the carrier. The oscillator is supplied in the company’s compact USSP housing measuring just 0.2 x 0.2 x 0.06 in. and drawing only 13 mA current. Second harmonics are suppressed to better than -13 dBc. Ideal for mobile radio and satellite-communications (satcom) applications, the VCO is available in tape-and-reel packaging to meet production requirements.
