New wide frequency range VCO series from IQD delivers excellent phase noise performance

by donpedro

IQD Frequency Products has chosen IMS 2013 to launch a new series of high performance customisable Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCOs) that provide a comprehensive solution for a diverse range of applications such as test and measurement, SATCOM, Telecom, and digital mobile radio. The new IVCO-100 series offers frequencies from 50MHz up to 6GHz. By virtue of the internal oscillator design, all variants offer excellent phase noise at the 10KHz and 100KHz frequency offsets and deliver highly linear frequency tuning with immunity to voltage supply and output load variations. Housed in a surface mountable 12.7 × 12.7 × 4.0mm industry standard package, all models in the series operate over the standard industrial temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees C. Output is typically 5.0dBm into 50 Ohms. The IVCO-100 is designed using a high-Q low loss coaxial resonator to satisfy applications requiring an ultra-stable Local Oscillator (LO) source where a narrow band design is the ideal choice.
This variant delivers the best combination of phase noise performance, harmonic suppression and high immunity to load pulling and voltage pushing from 665 to 685MHz.
