X-Microwave Announces mmWave Reference Design Kits Featuring Analog Devices ADMV1013 and ADMV1014 Up/Downconverters

News Highlights

  • Ready-to-use solution covering 24GHz – 44GHz, including 28/39 GHz 5G bands
  • Featuring Analog Devices ADMV1013 and ADMV1014 Up/Downconverter
  • Complete solution includes PLL/VCO, filters, hybrid coupler, and programming interface

Austin, Texas, April 27, 2020 – X-Microwave, LLC the market leader in RF and Microwave drop-in components announced today two new mmWave Reference Design Kits, XM-RDK-201 (ADMV1013 Upconverter) and XM-RDK-202 (ADMV1014 Downconverter). These ready-to-use solutions include all of the components needed to successfully up-convert and down-convert mmWave waveforms from low frequency IF (800 MHz – 6 GHz) to RF frequencies (24GHz to 44GHz). The reference design kits are built using X-MWblock® modular building blocks and include the required supporting components for generating and filtering the local oscillator (LO) as well as a 90° hybrid coupler for the IF input/output. The PLL/VCO and Up/Downconverter are programmed though the included X-MWcontroller touch screen interface.

“The ADMV1013 and ADMV1014 up/downconverters are highly integrated ICs that can serve many applications, but require additional components to use them effectively.” said Erik Luther, Vice President at X-Microwave, “We’re excited to provide a read-to-use solution for both component evaluation and prototyping production integrated microwave assemblies with X-MWblocks.”

The X-Microwave design system (X-MWsystem) consists of modular X-MWblock drop-in components featuring amplifiers, mixers, switches, attenuators, and more from the industry’s leading component manufacturers.  Individual X-MWblocks can be connected together solderlessly to rapidly build RF and Microwave assemblies from DC to 60 GHz. X-MWblocks are designed for use in production applications either individually as single-function connectorized modules or together in a cascade to rapidly produce custom integrated microwave assemblies (IMAs).
