MAX2605/MAX2606/MAX2608/MAX2609 VCO Phase Noise Measurements
This application note describes phase-noise measurements performed on these parts, using Maxim Evaluation kits. VCC = +2.75V, TA = +25°C, and VTUNE = 1.4V.
Note that in each graph presented, the phase noise follows the expect 20dB per decade roll-off. The MAX2607 was not measured for this application note, so a graph was not prepared. Expect the phase noise of the MAX2607 to follow the same roll-off exhibited by all the VCOs in this family.
