Pasternack’ Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCOs) are designed from 10 MHz to 11 GHz in a variety of packages The frequency of the output signal can be varied by adjusting the amplitude of the input-tuning voltage. A portfolio of VCOs includes models in true surface-mount and coaxial-packaged versions. Tuning voltages can range from 0 to 20 V, output power ranges from 0 to +12.5 dBm, and all models have an operational temperature range covering -40°F to +185°F. This line of voltage-controlled oscillators meets a series of MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions and can be deployed in applications such as phase-locked loops, frequency synthesizers, electronic-jamming equipment, and function generators.
