This inquiry is aimed towards the x-microwave folks, not ADI folks. I am an ADI applications engineer, focusing in RF applications.
I'd like to experiment with receive signal chains using the x-microwave tools. We've been experimenting with image reject mixer receive architectures, using two mixers and a 90 degree hybrid as the combiner on the IF side. The only ADI mixer I see is the HMC557 (2.5GHz to 7GHz mixer), which will do fine for starters, but I'm also looking for an ADI PLL in the x-microwave portfolio. In order to achieve the image rejection, I need to generate quadrature LO's, so need to have two PLLs (whatever they may be) and the ability to program their phase.
Is the HMC557 the only ADI mixer available in the x-microwave tools, and do you have a PLL available to generate a 2.5GHz to 7GHz LO?
Thanks for your interest in ADI products on our X-Microwave format.
There are a broad range of ADI parts that are being designed in at the moment and quite a few that are already designed that…
