RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a low power, highly integrated, IQ modulator with integrated fractional-N synthesizer and voltage controlled oscillator (VCO). The Qorvo RFMD2080 can generate output frequencies of between 45 and 2700 MHz, making it suitable for a wide range of applications such as satellite communications, QPSK/QAM modulators, SSB modulators and software defined radios (SDR).
The RFMD2080's fractional-N synthesizer offers very low spurious levels with typical step size of 1.5 Hz. Typical noise floor is -150 dBm/Hz. Programable via serial interface, P1dB is 4 dBm and the device runs from a 3 - 3.3 V supply consuming 155 mA.
Qorvo offers this I/Q modulator in a compact 5 x 5 mm QFN package.
