operates at 5800 MHz with a tuning voltage range of 0.5 to 4.5V dc. This
coaxial VCO features a typical phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz at 10KHz offset and
has excellent linearity. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the model CVCO55CXT-5800-5800 is packaged in the
industry-standard 0.5x 0.5 inch SMD package.
CVCO55CXT-5800-5800 CRO exhibits an output power of
+3dBm typ. into a 50O load with a supply of +8.0V dc and a typical current
consumption of 35mA. Pulling and Pushing are both minimized to 1.0MHz and
3.0MHz/V, respectively. Second harmonic suppression is -30dBc typical.
The CVCO55CXT-5800-5800 is ideal
for use in applications such as digital radio equipment, fixed wireless access,
satellite communications systems, and base stations.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
