Endwave Corp. will be showcasing several new products at IMS 2011 in Baltimore.
Endwave has added a pair of integrated frequency upconverters to its line of high performance GaAs monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) products. The models EWU1509YF and EWU1809YF frequency upconverters operate over intermediate-frequency (IF) ranges of DC to 4 GHz and generate frequencies of 10 to 15.4 GHz and 17 to 24 GHz, respectively. Based on GaAs pseudomorphic high-electron-mobility-transistor (PHEMT) technology, the highly integrated MMICs incorporate several frequency mixers, local oscillator (LO) amplifier or frequency doubler, and variable-gain RF amplifier circuitry. They are ideal for a wide range of applications, including in commercial and military transmitter systems.
Endwave has also released a new sub-harmonically pumped mixer (2 x LO) MMIC. Designed and manufactured in cooperation with WIN Semiconductor Corporation’s 0.1 μm PHEMT process development, model EWM9002ZZ offers a broadband frequency performance of 67 to 97 GHz with LO to RF isolation of over 30 dB and a conversion loss of 12 dB. The device, which can be used both as an upconverter or downconverter, also delivers RF return loss at better than 10 dB, LO drive level of +15 dBm, and is highly repeatable.
Endwave will be in Booth 1904 at the June show.
