The ADMV4530 is a highly integrated upconverter with an inphase/quadrature (I/Q) mixer that is ideally suited for next generation Ka band satellite communications.
An integrated low phase noise, fractional-N phase-locked loop (PLL) with a voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) and internal 2× multiplier generate the necessary on-chip local oscillator (LO) signal for the I/Q mixer, eliminating the need for external frequency synthesis. The VCO uses an internal autocalibration routine that allows the PLL to select the necessary settings and locks in approximately 100 us.
The ADMV4530 upconverter comes in a RoHs compliant, 6 mm × 6 mm, 40-terminal land grid array (LGA) package. The ADMV4530 operates over the −40 C to +85 C case temperature range.
