VCO Product List

LOW PHASE NOISE VCOs


API Technologies' Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCOs) are high quality frequency generation devices designed to serve both commercial and military requirements. Using high performance varactor diodes and optimizing circuit design techniques, API Technologies achieves superior high selectivity performance.

We use thermistors on all VCO designs for added temperature stability.
