Mimix Broadband, Inc. introduces a gallium arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) transmitter that delivers +14 dBm OIP3 and 5 dB conversion gain with +4 dBm LO drive level. Using 0.15 micron gate length GaAs pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT) device model technology, the transmitter covers the 32 to 45 GHz frequency bands and includes a balanced resistive mixer followed by a distributed amplifier, an LO doubler and an LO buffer amplifier. Identified as XU1004-BD, this device is well suited for point-to-point radio, LMDS, SatCom or VSAT applications.
