Fairview Microwave Inc. has released 16 voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) models covering bands from 10MHz to 4,350MHz. The VCOs offer tuning voltages ranging from 0.5V to 20V, output power from +4dBm to +12dBm and supply voltage of 5Vdc to 15Vdc.

The oscillator designs incorporate 50Ohm internal matching for simple integration onto a circuit board, 2nd harmonics as low as -25dBc and phase noise performance as low as -120dBc/Hz at 10KHz offset. These oscillators come in a 0.5in hermetically sealed surface mount package designed to meet MIL-STD-883 and MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for shock, vibration and temperature cycle. All models are RoHS and REACH and classified as EAR99.

Unlike traditional oscillators with a single fixed frequency, VCOs allow the frequency of the output signal to be varied by adjusting the amplitude of the input tuning voltage. These products are used in military electronics, SATCOM, test and measurement and wireless communications. Typical applications include phase locked loops, function generators, frequency synthesisers, receivers, electronic jamming equipment and local oscillators.

Fairview’s VCOs are in stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity.
