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 390 to 440 MHz VCO
May 23, 2013
-- VCO: CRO0419A-LF Features Low Phase Noise
Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model
for P25 mobile radios and basestation equipment. The CRO0419A-LF is designed to operate between
at 390 and 440 MHz within a tuning voltage range of 0.5 to 5 Vdc. This VCO features
phase noise of -117 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 17 MHz/V.
robust CRO0419A-LF provides the end user typical output power of -4.0 dBm into a 50 Ω load
while operating off a 5 Vdc supply and drawing 40 mA, typically, over the temperature
range of -30 to 70 ºC. This VCO features typical second harmonic suppression of -15 dBc
and comes in Z-Comm's standard MINI-16-SM package measuring 0.5 in. x 0.5 in. x 0.22 in.
This low noise VCO is further heightened by pushing less than 0.5 MHz/V, with 5% change
of the supply voltage, and pulling less than 0.1 MHz with a 12 dB return loss, any
