Integrated up-converter comes in a lead-free 24-lead PQFN plastic package
Housed in a lead-free 4mm x 4mm 24-lead PQFN plastic package, Macom's
MAUC-011003 integrated up-converter is now available from Mouser stock. The
device has a typical conversion gain of 12dB, and an image rejection of
The device includes an 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 32dBm at maximum gain.
The MAUC-011003 is seen as ideal for 28 and 32GHz band point-to-point radios
under both LSB and USB operation and Ka-Band VSAT applications. Each device
is 100% RF tested to ensure performance compliance, says the company.
