Analog Devices ADTR1107 Front-End ICs are compact, 6GHz to 18GHz, and are excellent for phased array antenna or radar applications. The ICs incorporate an integrated power amplifier, low noise amplifier, and a reflective single-pole, double-throw switch.
The ICs provide 25dBm of saturated output power and 22dB small-signal gain in a transmit state, as well as 18dB small-signal gain and 2.5dB noise figure in a receive state. Furthermore, the device has a directional coupler for power detection and input/outputs (I/Os) that are internally matched to 50Ohm.
The device is offered in a 5mm x 5mm, 24-terminal, land grid array package.
Typical applications include phased array antenna, defence radar, weather radar, communication links, and electronic defence.
