Product Development and Experimentation of High Bandwidth Modulation Covering 57 to 64 GHz is Made Easy Using Pasternack's
60 GHz Development System
Irvine, CA - Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, introduces the new
60 GHz development system which offers designers the ability to perform product development and experimentation of single
and multi-carrier high bandwidth modulation covering 57 to 64 GHz in the globally unlicensed ISM frequency spectrum. Applications
include baseband development up to 7 Gbps data rates using WiGig/WiFi 802.11ad and 802.11aj IEEE standards, GigE wireless
LAN, FMCW Radar, uncompressed HD video, RFID, radiometry, remote sensing, and campus networks.
60 GHz development system incorporates the use of compact and innovative Transmit (PEM001-MIM) and Receive
(PEM002-MIM) WR-15 waveguide
modules that utilize SiGe BiCMOS semiconductor technology. These modules are controlled by integrated Rx and Tx circuit
board assemblies that provide processing functions, power supply regulation and include reference crystal oscillators that
offer much improved phase noise performance that results in enhanced signal to noise ratio and receiver sensitivity. The
Rx and Tx circuit boards can also be phase locked to an external reference source. Command control functions are made via
a USB interface with a host PC (running GUI software).
The PEM009-KIT 60 GHz development system supports a variety of I/Q (vector) and FSK/MSK modulation schemes from a user
designed baseband system or from a vector modulated programmable Arbitrary Waveform Generator. The system is configured
as a standalone bench top wireless link where transmitted power directly from the waveguide aperture is equivalent to a
7 dBi gain horn antenna with a 70° wide beam pattern that’s useful to test and demonstrate various modulation schemes and
data rates. Transmission over longer distances is also possible by utilizing Pasternack WR-15 gain horn antennas (Models:
PE9881-20, PE9881-24, PE9881-34, and PE9881-42) that have calculated system link distances ranging from 3 meters to 500
