ANALOG DEVICES INC. Dual-Mode Ka-Band Upconverter

Analog Devices’ ADMV4530 Dual-Mode Ka-Band Upconverter offers designers a high level of integration that reduces component count and design complexity for next-generation Ka-band satellite communications. 

The ADMV4530 includes an I/Q mixer that can accept differential baseband I/Q inputs with up to 500MHz of bandwidth or a single-ended IF input up to 3GHz and upconverts to 27GHz to 31GHz. The IC integrates a fractional-N PLL, VCO, and multiplier to generate LO for the mixer, and the mixer output feeds into multiple gain and attenuation stages, capable of driving the output up to 19dBm at the 1dB compression point. 

The single-ended output and IF input are both matched to 50Ω. The ADMV4530 can be programmed via an SPI interface and is housed in a 40-terminal 6mm x 6mm LGA package. 

  • Upconversion modes: 
    • I/Q mode: 500MHz bandwidth 
    • IF mode: 2GHz to 3GHz
