The MAUC-010515 is an integrated USB upconverter
that has a typical conversion gain of
10 dB, and an image rejection of greater than
15 dBc. The device includes a LO doubler and
buffer, and can be tuned to give 2xLO leakage of
less than -15 dBm. 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. At full gain, an OIP3 of
30 dBm is typical. It is ideally suited for 42 GHz
band point-to-point radios.
Each device is 100% RF tested to ensure
performance compliance. The part is fabricated
using an efficient pHEMT process.
