MACOM’s 10.0-16.0 GHz QFN packaged
receiver has a noise figure of 2.5 dB and 12.0 dB
conversion gain. The device integrates an LNA, image
reject mixer and LO buffer amplifier within a fully
molded 4x4mm QFN package. The image reject mixer
eliminates the need for a bandpass filter after the LNA
to remove thermal noise at the image frequency. I and Q
mixer outputs are provided and an external 90 degree
hybrid is required to select the desired sideband. This
device uses Mimix Broadband’s GaAs PHEMT device
model technology, and is based upon electron beam
lithography to ensure high repeatability and uniformity.
This device is well suited for Point-to-Point Radio, LMDS,
SATCOM and VSAT applications.
