Analog Devices Inc. ADMV1013 Wideband Microwave Upconverters

Analog Devices ADMV1013 Wideband Microwave Upconverter is designed for point-to-point microwave radio designs operating in the 24GHz to 44GHz radio frequency range. The upconverter offers two modes of frequency translation. The device is capable of direct conversion to RF from baseband in-phase quadrature (I/Q) input signals, as well as single-sideband (SSB) upconversion from complex intermediate frequency (IF) inputs. Applications also include radar and electronic warfare systems, instrumentation, and automatic test equipment (ATE).
