Four new MMIC Upconverter and Downconverter devices from RFMD offer high performance and low cost for high frequency applications. The RFUV1002 and RFUV1003 Upconverters incorporate an image rejection mixer, LO buffer amplifier, variable gain amplifier, and DC-decoupling capacitor. The RFRX1001 and RFRX1002 Downconverters incorporate an image rejection mixer, LO buffer amplifier, integrated LNA, and DC-decoupling capacitor. Each device is packaged in a 5 x 5 mm QFN to simplify both system-level board design and volume assembly.

The combination of high performance and low cost packaging makes each of these devices a cost effective solution, ideally suited for point-to-point radio, satellite communications, military radar, and electronic warfare applications.
