Houston, Tex.Mimix Broadband Inc. introduced surface mount technology (SMT) packaged, gallium arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) receiver and transmitter devices that cover the 35 to 45 GHz and 36 to 42 GHz frequency bands, respectively.
The image-reject receiver has a noise figure of 3.5 dB and 10 dB conversion gain with +5 dBm IIP3. The transmitter has a +17 dBm output OIP3 and 5 dB conversion gain across the band.
The receiver integrates an image reject mixer, an LO doubler/buffer
amplifier, and a low noise amplifier and is offered in a 7x7mm SMT package. The transmitter integrates a balanced, image-reject
mixer, an LO doubler/buffer amplifier, and an output RF amplifier. The
RF amplifier is comprised of a series of gain and attenuation stages to
achieve linear gain control with a fixed IF input level.
The receiver and transmitter pair, identified as XR1008-QB and
XU1006-QB respectively, is well-suited for wireless communications
applications such as millimeter-wave point-to-point radio, local
multipoint distribution services (LMDS), SATCOM and VSAT applications.
Availability: Engineering samples and production quantities are available today from stock.
Datasheets: XR1008-QB and XR1006-QB.
