Hittite's New Programmable DCR Solution for Multi-Carrier,-- Excellent Linearity, Low Noise Figure & Full Programmability
Chelmsford, MA, 10/19/2011 - Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets announces the release of the HMC6383 , a high-performance, flexible, Direct Conversion Receiver (DCR) radio design platform that can be configured on-the-fly. Fully field programmable, the HMC6383 platform is designed to serve as a receiver subsystem building block for various applications including cellular basestations, microwave radio, adaptive IF strips, wireless LAN, software defined radio and test equipment.
Utilizing a robust direct conversion receiver architecture, the HMC6383 features precisely programmable 3 dB bandwidth from 3.5 MHz to 50 MHz baseband (7 MHz to 100 MHz RF) within ±2.5% bandwidth accuracy. This unique radio design platform also provides wideband input frequency coverage from 700 MHz to 3000 MHz with 90 dB of distributed programmable gain, and high linearity in excess of 60 dBm input IP2. The integrated, seamless, image rejection calibration algorithm achieves 80 dB of image rejection.
The HMC6383 enables users to offer identical hardware receiver platforms across various standards, jurisdictions, and bands of operation, while pre-programming or field programming the receiver to suit each individual deployment. This capability significantly reduces the cost and complexity of manufacturing, deploying, and supporting standard and region-specific equipment. The HMC6383 evaluation development kit includes a full software suite for complete configuration and control. This enables system designers to observe and understand the effects and implications of any parameter on their overall system design performance. Market leading performance, combined with a robust fully configurable design, makes the HMC6383 evaluation platform a logical starting point in designing a modular, highly-configurable, multi-standard, multi-carrier receiver.
Detailed technical and product information for the HMC6383 evaluation development design kit is available from the company website at www.hittite.com. Price and delivery information is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
