Milpitas, Calif.A new wide bandwidth active upconverting mixer, the LT5578 from Linear Technology, delivers high dynamic range performance from 400MHz to 2.7GHz, supporting all of the allocated LTE (Long-Term Evolution) broadband wireless services.
At 900MHz, the mixer offers 27dBm Output IP3 linearity and noise floor of -160.5dBm/Hz at an output level of -5dBm.. In addition, the mixer has 1.4dB conversion gain with integrated RF balun transformers that provide a single-ended RF output and LO (Local Oscillator) input to simplify designs while reducing external component count. Moreover, the device's LO input is internally buffered, requiring a drive level of only -1dBm. This results in an LO-to-RF leakage of -43dBm.
The LT5578 is designed to satisfy the requirements of next generation LTE wireless basestation transmitters and improves the performance of wireless equipment including W-CDMA / UMTS, TD-SCDMA, CDMA2000, CDMA, and GSM/EDGE basestations. The mixer is also intended for a wide range of communications gear such as cable headend transmitters, microwave broadband transmitters, wireless repeaters, military radios, digital video broadcast systems, 2.4GHz ISM band transmitters, test instrumentation, micro-cell and pico-cell basestation applications.
