2 new VCOs operating in S and C band

The European Space Agency (ESA) has added these circuits to its EPPL list confirming their reliability and suitability for space applications.



The CHV1203-98F and CHV1206-98F are 2 fully integrated VCOs including negative resistor, varactors and buffer amplifiers.

They exhibit high frequency stability and have been designed with space de-rating.

Although designed for space, they are suitable for a wide range of applications including commercial communication systems.

These circuits are manufactured using a 2µm InGaP HBT process.
