Digital-to-Analog Converter

May 14, 2004 5:38 am | Product Releases | Comments

FMA announces that the MB86064 dual 14-bit DAC now features a conversion rate of 1GSa/s. Fujitsu's double data rate (DDR) LVDS interfaces help to enable the increased data rate. Combined with its proprietary loop-clock facility, this enables realizable solutions when combined with either FPGA or ASIC data generators.

Frequency Multiplier

May 14, 2004 5:38 am | Product Releases | Comments

Hittite introduces a 9.9 to 12.7 GHz Active X2 frequency multiplier which is suitable for use as an LO multiplier in microwave radio, VSAT, radar, and ECM applications, and in OC-192 clock recovery circuits. The HMC369LP3 provides +4 dBm of output power. All undesired fundamental and sub-harmonics are suppressed to 30 dBc with respect to the output signal level, while the low additive SSB phase noise of 𤩾 dBc/Hz at 100 KHz offset, helps the user maintain good system noise performance.

Power Amplifier
