Mouser Expands Crystek Corporation® Product Portfolio with New VCOs

November 10, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Mouser Electronics, Inc., known for its rapid introduction of the newest products, today announced it has expanded its Crystek Corporation® product portfolio with the addition of their new 400-800MHz and 800-1600MHz VCOs. Crystek Corporation is a leading supplier of frequency control products including clock, temperature compensated, voltage controlled, voltage controlled crystal, and temperature compensated voltage controlled oscillators, as well as quartz crystals.

“Both the design engineering community and our suppliers rely on Mouser to supply the newest products available to the marketplace,” according to Barry McConnell, Mouser Vice President of Product Marketing. “By stocking new products like these VCOs from Crystek, Mouser is able to fulfill its commitment to both suppliers and design engineers alike.”

The CVCO55CW-0400-0800 VCOs operate from 400MHz to 800MHz with a control voltage range of 0V~12V. These VCOs feature a typical phase noise of -105dBc/Hz @ 10KHz offset and have excellent linearity. Features include 5.0V with a maximum current consumption of 25mA and a typical second harmonic suppression of -5dBc, as well as minimized pulling and pushing to 2.00MHz and 2.00MHz/V.

The CVCO55CW-0800-1600 VCOs operate from 800MHz to 1600MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5V~19V. These VCOs feature a typical phase noise of -100dBc/Hz @ 10KHz offset and have excellent linearity. Features include an input voltage of 11.5V and a maximum current consumption of 30mA, as well as minimized pulling and pushing to 5.00MHz and 1.00MHz/V.

Both devices are packaged in the industry standard 0.5” x 0.5” SMD package and are ideal for use in applications such as digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, and base stations.

Mouser’s broad-based product line, unsurpassed customer service, and streamlined warehouse operations make the distributor the design engineer’s one-stop shop for all the components and associated development tools necessary for total project design.
