Crystek's CVCO55FLM VCOs (Voltage
Controlled Oscillators) contain an extra modulation port
(TX modulation) for transmitter applications. The modulation port has a
negative slope and a typical modulation sensitivity of -20KHz/V.
from 172 to 210 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.2
to 4.8V. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -119 dBc/Hz @ 10KHz
offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is
typically 0 dBm.
Model CVCO55FLM-0172-0210 is packaged in the
industry-standard 0.5 x 0.5 in. SMD
package. Input voltage is 3V, with a max. current consumption of 9 mA. Pulling
and Pushing are minimized to 1.0 MHz and 0.5 MHz/V, respectively. Second
harmonic suppression is -20 dBc typical.
What if algae borne of fertilizer runoff that pollutes rivers and lakes could be harvested and used as biofuel feedstock? What if the leftovers could be recycled into farm soil nutrients, eliminating at least some of the need for artificial fertilizers in the first place? Western Michigan University researchers have a plan.
Manufacturers of plastic parts recognize the potential of conformal cooling to reduce molding cycle times. Problem is, conformal molds require additive manufacturing (AM), and technologies in that space are still evolving. Costs also can be high, and beyond that, many manufacturing organizations lack the knowledge and expertise needed to apply and incorporate additive technologies into their operations.
