The MAOC-409000 is a wideband voltage controlled oscillator operating in the 6 - 12 GHz range. The VCO has flat output power and very low phase noise over its operating conditions. A single +5V bias voltage is required, and a tuning voltage of 0 - 23 V. The device is fully matched and no external matching components are required. The MAOC-409000 has very low phase noise, stable output power over temperature and excellent tuning control, making it ideal for applications such as communications systems, test and measurement and wideband defense applications. The 4 mm package has a lead-free finish that is RoHS compliant and compatible with a 260ºC reflow temperature. The package features low lead inductance and an excellent thermal path.
