E-Band Upconverters

Categories // Latest News RF

HMC7584 and HMC7585 by ADI.

The HMC7584LG is fully integrated System in Package (SiP) in phase/quadrature (I/Q) upconverter that operates between an IF input frequency range of DC to 2 GHz and an RF output frequency range of 71 GHz to 76 GHz. The device uses an image rejection mixer that is driven by a 6× LO multiplier. A variable gain amplifier followed by medium power amplifier are added to the mixer outputs to provide a small signal conversion gain of 34 dB typical. Differential I and Q mixer inputs are provided and can be driven with differential I and Q baseband waveforms for direct conversion applications. Alternatively, the inputs can be driven using an external 90° hybrid and two external 180° hybrids for single-ended applications.


Applications

  • E-Band Communication Systems
  • High Capacity Wireless Backhaul
  • Test & Measurement

Features and Benefits:

  • Conversion Gain: 34 dB typical
  • Gain Control Range: 40 dB typical
  • Saturated Output Power (PSAT): 25 dBm typical
  • Output Third-Order Intercept (IP3): 31 dBm typical
  • Output Power for P1dB Compression: 24 dBm
  • Built-in Power Detector
  • Built-in Envelope Detector for I/Q Mismatch Correction
  • Fully Integrated In Surface Mount 50 Lead 16 mm x 14 mm Package

The HMC7585LG is fully integrated System in Package (SiP) in phase/quadrature (I/Q) upconverter that operates from 81 GHz to 86 GHz. The device uses an image rejection mixer that is driven by a 6 × LO multiplier. A variable gain amplifier followed by a medium power amplifier are added to the mixer outputs to provide a small signal conversion gain of 32 dB typical. Differential I and Q mixer inputs are provided and can be driven with differential I and Q baseband waveforms for direct conversion applications. Alternatively, the inputs can be driven using an external 90° hybrid and two external 180° hybrids for single-sideband applications.
