Hittite offers the industry’s largest portfolio of ultra-low-phase noise narrow and wideband Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCOs) with operating frequencies up 27 GHz. This family of monolithic low-noise MMIC VCOs offer excellent phase noise with divided output frequencies, immunity to shock and vibration and integrated output buffer amplifiers. When combined with Hittites best-in-class PLL IC’s, state-of-the-art frequency synthesizers and phase locked oscillators (PLO’s) can be created to directly drive the LO port of Hittite's high-linearity mixers, and integrated up and down conversion products.
Hittite, the market innovator in MMIC VCOs for over 10 years offers best-in-class performance in industry-standard RoHS-compliant packaging and pin-outs with low-power consumption. The small form-factor of these MMIC VCOs make them ideal for demanding high QAM microwave point-to-point links, communications test equipment, military subsystems, VSAT, millimeter sensors, and radar arrays. Evaluation boards for all MMIC VCOs are available.
