Voltage Controlled Oscillator Is in Hermetically Sealed TO-8 PackageCrystek Corp. has introduced a series of TO-8 VCOs (voltage controlled oscillators) to provide high-performance frequency control in harsh, demanding environments. Crystek's CVCOT8BE line features a full-functioning VCO in a rugged, hermetically sealed TO-8 package to protect the VCO from moisture, contaminants, and other environmental elements. The metal-can construction features gold plated pins with no internal wire bonds for enhanced signal integrity.

Two models are currently available: the CVCOT8BE-2100-2200 (2100-2200 MHz) and CVCOT8BE-2400-2500 (2400-2500MHz); additional models can be configured from 1 to 5 GHz in bands. These VCOs feature a typical phase noise of -101 dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz offset and excellent linearity. Tuning sensitivity is rated at 55 MHz/V. Pulling and Pushing are minimized to 11.0 MHz and 1.0 MHz/V, respectively; second harmonic suppression is -15 dBc typical.
