This VCO provides electromagnetic energy within some range around of central frequency with high output power. Original design uses low frequency stable voltage controlled oscillator and frequency multiplier. To increase output power an IMPATT mm-wave power amplifier can be used. Max value of output power level depends on frequency range requested. It can be 200 mW at 94 GHz and 100 mW at 140 GHz.
Output power and frequency are controlled by means of external DC or pulse voltages.
The VCOM-X/CF/BW/P oscillator can be supplied with power supply which fed only 220 VAC. The oscillator can have an option for remote control.
Reliable work of VCOM-X/CF/BW/P oscillators allows to use it in scientific experiments which last for long time, for example, few weeks or even few months.
There are three basic models of the VCOM-X/CF/BW/P oscillators in ELVA-1 product line. Custom designed VCOM models can be produced by a special order.
Block-schemas of ELVA-1 VCOs
Typical measured data for W-band and D-band VCO oscillators:

How to Order :
CF - Central frequency (in GHz)
BW – bandwidth (in GHz)
P - output power (typ) (mW)
Standard flange is UG-XXX/U round
E.g. VCOM-10/94/0.5/200 ( W-band oscillator, WR-10, Central frequency 94GHz, Bandwidth 0.5 GHz, Output power 200 mW (typical)
Delivery time 8-12 weeks depending on required specifications. All ELVA-1 VCOM series oscillators are warranted by the manufacturer for one year after delivery.
