The MAUC-010506 is an integrated up-converter
that has a typical conversion gain of 14 dB, and an
image rejection of 25 dBc. The device includes a
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.
The MAUC-010506 is ideally suited for 18 and 23
GHz band point-to-point radios under both LSB and
Each device is 100% RF tested to ensure
performance compliance. The part is fabricated
using an efficient pHEMT process.
