Crystek Maximizes Performance And Efficiency In New 6000-6075 MHz Coaxial Resonator Oscillator (CRO)


Crystek's new CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 Coaxial Resonator Oscillator (CRO) is a coaxial-based VCO with an internal proprietary frequency doubler. The CVCO55CXT family’s frequency doubling, 2X fundamental technology reaches new performance levels of lower phase noise and much lower harmonics over the competition, while achieving lower current consumption in the process.

The CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 operates from 6000 to 6075 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0.5 VDC to 4.5 VDC. This coaxial VCO features a typical phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset and has good linearity. The CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 CRO exhibits an output power of 5 dBm typical into a 50 ohm load with a supply of +8.0 VDC and a maximum current consumption of 25 mA.

Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 CRO is packaged in the industry standard 0.5 in x 0.5 in package. Pushing and Pulling are both minimized to 1.5 MHz/V and 0.5 MHz, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -30 dBc typical.

The CVCO55CXT-6000-6075 is ideal for use in applications such as digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access, satellite communications systems, and base stations.
