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 Low Noise Dielectric Resonator SMT VCO at 8 GHz
April 17, 2013 Press Release
Low Noise Dielectric Resonator SMT VCO at 8 GHz
The new high performance
DRO8000A covers 8000 MHz
within a tuning voltage range of 0-12 Vdc and is ideal for the test and measurement market.
Utilizing dielectric resonator technology this VCO features a typical phase noise of -103 dBc/Hz
@ 10 kHz offset and an average tuning sensitivity of only 1 MHz/V.
low noise DRO8000A is
designed to deliver a typical output power of 3 dBm into a 50 ohm load while operating
from a 5 Vdc supply and drawing only 20 mA of current. It is designed to operate over
the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C while suppressing the second harmonic to better
than -40 dBc. The DRO8000A is further heightened by having a frequency drift of better than
±250ppm over temperature. This low powered VCO comes in Z-COMM's standard surface mount SDRO
package measuring 0.91 in. x 0.91 in. x 0.45 in.
