SMT millimeter-wave ICs for microwave radios through 20 GHz.

Agilent Technologies has introduced a series of millimeter-wave ICs in a 5 mm X 5 mm SMT package compatible with automated assembly techniques. This series is said to fill virtually all the active RF requirements of point-to-point and point-to-multipoint microwave links. These applications include IEEE 802.16 broadband wireless access and IEEE 802.20 mobile broadband wireless access, wireless local loop (WLL), multipoint microwave distribution system (MMDS, also known as wireless cable) and other cost-sensitive commercial communications systems operating from 6 GHz to 20 GHz. Initial products in the offering include the following: The AMPP-5618, a 6 GHz to 20 GHz general-purpose amplifier with 19 dBm output power and 13 dB gain. It includes a two-stage amplifier designed for use as a cascadable intermediate gain block for applications, including LO buffer or transmit driver amplifier. The AMMP-6530, a 5 GHz to 30 GHz image reject mixer (5 GHz to 30 GHz LO and RF, DC to 5 GHz IF) featuring -7 dB conversion loss and 15 dB image suppression. The design combines passive FET mixing and integrated Lange coupler. The AMMP-6420 is a 6 GHz to 18 GHz high-gain, 1W power amplifier. It features partial input and output match to 50[OMEGA] and unconditional stability. Gate voltage can be optimized for linear or saturated operation, and a reference and output detector provides output power detection over a 15 dB range. The AMMP-6220 is a 6 GHz to 20 GHz low-noise amplifier featuring 2.2 dB noise figure and 23 dB gain. The amplifier has fully integrated input and output DC blocking capacitors, bias choke and single supply selfbias. The AMMP-6120, a 6 GHz to 20 GHz times-2 frequency multiplier, takes a 3 GHz to 10 GHz input signal and doubles it to 6 GHz to 20 GHz with integrated amplification, matching, harmonic suppression and bias network.
