Hittite’s booth will incorporate a live product demonstration area where engineers can interact with some of our
latest products. Products to be showcased in the live product demonstration area include:
Hittite’s powerful signal generators are designed to support the exploding market for
communication and sensor equipment operating at millimeterwave frequencies. With output frequencies up to 70 GHz,
these signal generators exhibit low -77 dBc/Hz phase noise, better than -46 dBc spurious output, and up to +2 dBm
of output power. On display at the show will be the
and HMC-T2240 Synthesized
Wideband PLL with Integrated VCO
HMC830LP6GE is an
industry leading low noise, wideband, Fractional-N Phase-Locked-Loop (PLL) with integrated Voltage Controlled
Oscillator (VCO) that is the ultimate choice for designers looking for a single, superior performance,
multi-purpose, multi-application device that can cover a wide frequency range. Ideal for wideband multi-carrier,
multi-standard cellular base stations as it can be used in up or down conversion, as a low jitter clock generator,
or as a tunable reference source for spurious free performance. It is also ideal for high QAM microwave
point-to-point links, software defined radios and communications test equipment.
HMC830LP6GE is capable of
generating continuous frequencies from 25 MHz to 8400 MHz and features a synthesizer Figure of Merit of -230 and
-227 dBc/Hz in integer and fractional modes, respectively. Double sideband RMS jitter is less than 180 fs and the
noise floor is -170 dBc/Hz in fundamental mode at 2 GHz.
Hittite’s high performance 3 GHz Direct Conversion Receiver,
combines new wideband components and techniques to achieve excellent system level performance: 700 to 3000 MHz RF
Input, Programmable IF Bandwidth of 7 to 100 MHz and programmable accuracy of +/- 2.5%.
Speed Multi-GHz Quantizer
The HMC9000, a High Speed, Multi-GHz Quantizer Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) which provides up to 12-bit
resolution to 500 MSPS. The HMC9000 provides excellent performance for microwave frequencies, including the
industry’s best ultra high frequency wideband performance utilizing Hittite’s track & hold amplifiers and ADCs.
HMC9000 also offers a robust and optimized PCB design and layout which includes a path to improve performance
through integration, either MCM or monolithic. Hittite’s data converters offer lowest power consumption for best
Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR).
RFIC Dual Channel Downconverter
HMC990LP4E is a high
linearity, dual channel downconverting mixer optimized for multi-standard diversity receiver applications that
require low power consumption. The
features new wideband limiting LO amplifiers to achieve an unprecedented RF bandwidth of 700 MHz to 3500 MHz.
Unlike conventional narrow-band downconverter RFICs, the
HMC990LP4E supports both
high-side and low-side LO rejection over the entire RF frequency band. The RF and LO input ports are internally
matched to 50 Ω.
integrates LO and IF amplifiers with enable functions, LO and RF baluns and high linearity passive mixer cores
with the industry’s most compact RoHS complaint 4 x 4 mm2 leadless QFN package. The balanced passive mixer
combined with high-linearity IF amplifier architecture provides excellent LO-to-RF, LO-to-IF, and RF-to-IF
HMC990LP4E provides a very
low noise figure of 9 dB, and high IIP3 of +25.6 dBm allowing the device to be used in demanding wideband
applications. The mixer’s input IP3 can be further improved by external matching for narrow-band applications. The
HMC990LP4E consumes less
than 1.5 W of power, and also features a very fast enable control interface which is ideal for power saving in TDD
Additional Newly Released Products from Hittite Include:
Clocks and Timing
Microwave has developed a unique line of high performance clock distribution and clock generation products that
enable the system designer maximize the performance from data converters. The
HMC1032LP6GE and the
HMC1034LP6GE are SMT
packaged clock generators, which are ideal for a wide range of high performance cellular/4G infrastructure, fiber
optic and networking applications, and deliver best-in-class jitter and industry-leading phase noise floor.
Optical Modulator Driver
HMC5850BG is a driver
amplifier designed for 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps Mach-Zehnder optical modulator driver applications. Features such as
high gain across a wide frequency range, low power dissipation, very compact size, integrated peak detector
function, fast rise/fall time, and integrated bias-T inductor make the
HMC5850BG a best-in-class
The HMC5850BG provides
8 Vp-p saturated output swing and features output swing crosspoint adjustment. There are only 4 DC control signals
required to tune the crossing and output RF amplitude. The integrated bias-tee eliminates the need for an external
high frequency coil, simplifies the PCB design and lowers the BOM cost.
HMC5850BG operates over a
wide +5V to +7V (Vdd) supply range, and the RF I/Os are internally matched to 50 Ohms. The
HMC5850BG provides long
haul designers with scalable power dissipation for varying output drive requirements, (1.4 W at Vout = 8 Vp-p and
0.8 W at Vout = 6 Vp-p). The integrated peak detector enables the output swing (Vp-p) stability of Lithium Niobate
(LiNOb3) modulator for calibration and field monitoring as a part of the MZ modulator bias loop.
