I have something to ask you about HMC-MDB277.
I’m looking for an up-converter which modulates a 73-GHz LO signal with a high-speed(>10 Gbps) baseband data and also a down-converter which operates in the opposite way. The target application is not related to E-band wireless backhaul. There is another different channel I’ve made for communication in the ~70GHz frequency band.
If the several requirements are satisfied, our lab is planning to purchase the product.
I’m looking forward to your reply.
Have a good time at the end of the year.
We have new E-band die that are available, the datasheets will be on the website soon. The lowband solution (71 to 76 GHz) may be an option for you. The HMC8118 up-converter and HMC7586 down-converter both interface traditional I/Q and support 2 GHz wide channels. The die also contains a x6 multiplier at the LO input so a lower frequency LO can be used to drive the input. For the TX, a pre-driver/VGA (HMC8120) and PA (HMC7543) are also available.
