The 1-GHz bandwidth capability, along with the upconverter’s OIP3 of more than 20 dBm that supports stringent modulation schemes such as 1024QAM, are necessary to enable multi-Gigabit wireless data. Moreover, the chipset benefits other applications such as satellite and earth station broadband communication links, aircraft radios, RF test equipment and radar systems. Their superb linearity and image rejection performance are particularly compelling for improved range of microwave transceivers.
The ADMV1013 is offered in a 40-pin, 6- x 6-mm LGA, and the ADMV1014 is in a 32-pin, 5- x 5-mm LGA package. Samples and production quantities are available immediately.
