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.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
