Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new up-converter for point-to-point applications from M/A-COM Technology Solutions (MACOM).
The MAUC-010506 is an integrated up-converter featuring a typical conversion gain of 14 dB, an image rejection of 25 dBc, and 21 dBm third order intercept (IIP3). The device includes an LO doubler, LO buffer amplifier, and RF buffer amplifier. Variable gain can be achieved by adjusting the bias, with turn-down trajectories optimized to maintain linearity and 2xLO leakage over the gain control range. The output IP3 is 33 dBm at maximum gain. It is available in a lead-free 4 mm, 24-lead QFN package.
The MAUC-010506 is ideally-suited for 18 and 23 GHz band point-to-point radios under both LSB and USB operation and is the latest addition to MACOM's line of point-to-point chipset solutions, which also includes chipsets covering all bands from 6 GHz to 42 GHz. With a systems-driven approach to integration, coupled with innovative IC and package design capabilities, MACOM's point-to-point devices enable faster time-to-market with optimal performance.
