Stanford Microdevices Expands SiGe HBT Active Receive Mixer Line for 2.5G, 3G, WLAN and Fixed-Wireless Infrastructure Applications.
SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 31, 2001
Stanford Microdevices (NASDAQ:SMDI), a leading designer and supplier of high-performance radio-frequency (RF) components for communications equipment manufacturers, today introduced a new family of silicon germanium (SiGe) active receive mixers ideally suited to 2G, 2.5G, 3G, WLAN, and fixed-wireless infrastructure applications.
The SRM-1016 and SRM-3016 extend Stanford Microdevices' offering of silicon germanium (SiGe) active receive mixers and complement the already-released 1700 to 2300 MHz SRM-2016. The new SRM-1016 targets frequencies in the range of 800 to 1000 MHz, while the SRM-3016 covers 2300 to 2700 MHz. Both ICs are packaged in industry-standard 16-pin, exposed-pad TSSOP plastic packages, ideal for applications where space is at a premium.
The SRM-1016 provides 10 dB of conversion gain while exhibiting an IIP3 = +19 dBm and an SSB NF = 15 dB. The SRM-3016 also provides 10 dB of conversion gain while exhibiting an IIP3 = +15.5 dBm and a SSB NF=15 dB. Both parts boast excellent return loss on all three ports (20dB typical), and also exhibit very low LO leakage. The parts are designed to operate with a low LO drive level (0 dBm) and are specified for use with a single +5V power supply.
"With the addition of the SRM-1016 and the SRM-3016, we are continuing to provide our customers with RFICs with increasing levels of integration and functionality," stated Gary Gianatasio, SMDI's vice president and general manager for Wireless Infrastructure Products. "The SRM-3016 is the first SiGe active receive mixer to exhibit this kind of linearity and conversion gain in the 2300 to 2700 MHz frequency range and is targeted to address WLAN and fixed-wireless equipment applications. We believe this family of new products will provide equipment manufacturers high levels of performance and integrated functionality."
Samples and fully assembled evaluation boards are available now from Stanford Microdevices. Production quantities will be available in October 2001.
