MACOM launches up-converter for 28-34GHz point-to-point radio

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes analog semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog, RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications) has launched the MAUC-011003 integrated up-converter, suited to 28-34GHz point-to-point radio applications.

With an input IP3 (third-order intercept point) of 20dBm and an output IP3 of 32dBm, the device has a typical conversion gain of 12dB, and an image rejection of 15dBc and is integrated with an LO doubler, LO buffer amplifier and RF buffer amplifier, assembled in a lead-free 4mm 24-lead PQFN plastic package. Operating over the 28-34GHz frequency bandwidth, the device boasts what is claimed to be the industry’s leading LO suppression, eliminating the need for a Tx Filter.

“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,” says product manager Michael O’Driscoll.

The MAUC-011003 delivers turn down trajectories optimized to maintain linearity and 2xLO leakage over the gain control range and is suited for 28-34GHz bandwidth for point-to-point radios under both LSB and USB operation and Ka-band VSAT applications.

Production quantities and samples of the MAUC-011003 are available from stock.
