), 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) A semiconductor material made from silicon and germanium. Germanium is very similar to silicon, but when one layer is grown on top of the other to form the base of the transistor, the resulting transistor can switch faster and yield higher performance.  (SiGe) active receive mixers ideally suited to 2G, 2.5G, 3G, WLAN See wireless LAN.

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 (MegaHertZ) One million cycles per second. It is used to measure the transmission speed of electronic devices, including channels, buses and the computer's internal clock. A one-megahertz clock (1 MHz) means some number of bits (16, 32, 64, etc.  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 TSSOP Thin Shrink Small Outline Package

 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.
