MACOM Launches Up-Converter For 28 To 34GHz Point-to-Point Radio
LO leakage and high linearity means minimal filtering
MACOM has announced a new integrated up-converter suited for 28 and 34GHz point-to-point radio applications. Assembled in a lead-free 4mm 24-lead PQFN plastic package, the device has a typical conversion gain of 12dB, and an image rejection of 15dBc and is integrated with a LO doubler, LO buffer amplifier, and RF buffer amplifier.
The device is said to offer industry's leading LO suppression that eliminates the customers' need for a Tx Filter.
"The MAUC-011003 is ideal for customers looking for a high performance up-converter for use in current and next generation point-to-point microwave radios," said Michael O'Driscoll, product manager. "The exceptional LO leakage performance and high linearity enables the implementation of high order modulation schemes using direct up-conversion or using an IF with minimal LO filtering, hence reducing the complexity and cost of the overall system for our customers."
The MAUC-011003 delivers turn down trajectories optimised to maintain linearity and 2xLO leakage over the gain control range and is ideally suited for 28 to 34GHz bandwidth for point-to-point radios under both LSB and USB operation and Ka-Band VSAT applications.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
