A new receiver from M/A-COM Technology Solutions is available at Richardson RFPD along with full design support capabilities. The XR1020-QH is a 31–36GHz receiver with a noise figure of 3 dB and 14 dB conversion gain. It integrates a low noise amplifier, image reject mixer and LO buffer amplifier within a fully-moulded, lead-free, 4-millimeter, 24-lead PQFN package.
The image reject mixer eliminates the need for a bandpass filter after the LNA to remove thermal noise at the image frequency.
I and Q mixer outputs are provided, and an external 90° hybrid is required to select the desired sideband.
The XR1020-QH is suitable for point-to-point radio, SATCOM and military applications.
