The MAUC-010515 is an integrated USB up-converter that has a typical conversion gain of 11 dB, and an image rejection of greater than 15 dBc. The device includes a LO doubler and buffer, and can be tuned to give 2xLO leakage of less than -15 dBm. 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. At full gain, an OIP3 of 30 dBm is typical. It is ideally suited for 42 GHz band point-to-point radios.
Each device is 100% RF tested to ensure performance compliance. The part is fabricated using an efficient pHEMT process.
