Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new 40.5–43.5 MHz receiver with high third-order intercept point (IIP3) from M/A-COM Technology Solutions (MACOM).

The MADC-010736is an integrated USB receiver solution with an IIP3 of +9 dBm (typical at IF=2 GHz), a noise figure of 3.5 dB, and a typical conversion gain of 12 dB. The MADC-010736 includes an integrated LO buffer, LO doubler, low noise amplifier (LNA), and balanced image reject mixer. It is ideally-suited for 42 GHz band point-to-point radio applications.

The integrated mixer provides image rejection of 30 dBc. I and Q mixer outputs are provided, and an external 90° hybrid is required to complete the image rejection function. The device is packaged in a 6-mm laminate package that is RoHS compliant and compatible with reflow temperatures to 260 °C, allowing it to be assembled using standard surface mount production lines.

 Key features of the MADC-010736include:

  •  Integrates LNA, image reject mixer, LO doubler, and LO buffer
  • 3.5 dB noise figure
  • 12 dB conversion gain
  • 30 dBc image rejection
  • +9 dBm input third order intercept @ 2 GHz IF
  • Lead-free 6-mm laminate package
  • RoHS-compliant and 260 °C reflow compatible
