RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Z-Comm Intros 1250 to 1400 MHz VCO
May 23, 2013
-- VCO: USSP1325-LF Features Ultra Compact Size and Low Phase Noise
Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model
in the L-band. The USSP1325-LF operates at 1250 to 1400 MHz with a tuning voltage range
of 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc. This miniaturized VCO features phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz
offset while operating off a 5 Vdc supply and typically drawing only 25 mA of current.
USSP1325-LF provides the end user an output power of 3±3 dBm into a 50 Ω load while
operating over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85 º C. This robust VCO suppresses
the second harmonic to better than -15 dBc and covers the frequency range with a tuning
linearity of better than 1.1:1. The USSP1325-LF comes in Z-Comm's standard USSP package measuring
a mere 0.2 in. x 0.2 in. x 0.06 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production
requirements making it ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow.
USSP1325-LF is well suited for portable radio and test equipment applications that require low
power consumption as well as low phase noise. Additional specifications for this product can
be found on-line at:
