The ADMV1011 is a compact, gallium arsenide (GaAs) design, monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), double sideband (DSB) upconverter in an RoHS compliant package optimized for point to point microwave radio designs that operates in the 17 GHz to 24 GHz frequency range.
The ADMV1011 provides 21 dB of conversion gain with 20 dB of image rejection. The ADMV1011 uses a radio frequency (RF) amplifier preceded by an in phase/quadrature (I/Q) double balanced mixer, where a driver amplifier drives the local oscillator (LO) with a 2× multiplier. IF1 and IF2 mixer inputs are provided and an external 90° hybrid is needed to select the required sideband. The I/Q mixer topology reduces the need for filtering the unwanted sideband. The ADMV1011 is a much smaller alternative to hybrid style DSB upconverter assemblies and it eliminates the need for wire bonding by allowing the use of surface-mount manufacturing assemblies.
The ADMV1011 upconverter comes in a compact, thermally enhanced, 4.9 mm × 4.9 mm LCC package. The ADMV1011 operates over the −40°C to +85°C temperature range.
