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-Communications Intros 1200 MHz VCO for High-Speed A/D Converters
January 10, 2013 Press Release
-- VCO: CRO1200A-LF Features Low Phase Noise
Inc. announces a new RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model CRO1200A-LF for
high speed analog to digital converters. The CRO1200A-LF is designed to operate at 1200 MHz
within a tuning voltage range of 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc. This VCO features phase noise of -119 dBc/Hz
@ 10 kHz offset and a typical tuning sensitivity of 2 MHz/V.
The robust CRO1200A-LF
provides the end user typical output power of -3.0 dBm into a 50Ω load while operating off a
5 Vdc supply and drawing 20 mA, typically, over the temperature range of -40 to 85º C. This
VCO features typical second harmonic suppression of -25 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 0.5 MHz with
a 12 dB return loss, any phase.
