Endwave Corporation announces the release of a transmit-receive module pair that operates over the E-band frequency spectrum from 71.0 to 86.0 GHz. These modules enable broadband point-to-point radios to carry voice and data traffic at multi-gigabit per second rates. The typical performance of Endwave's transmit module includes a conversion gain of 15 dB and an output power of 16 dBm, with an integrated power detector on the Tx output. Endwave's E-band receiver provides a noise figure of 9 dB, better than 25 dB of RF-to-IF conversion gain, and an input 1 dB compression point (P1dB) of 㪱 dBm. Separate models cover the 71 to 76 GHz and 81 to 86 GHz operating bands. Both Tx and Rx use an MLMS™ sub-harmonic mixer topology that provides a single level of conversion direct from E-Band to IF.
