Analog Devices recently launched a pair of highly integrated microwave upconverter and downconverter chips operating over a wide frequency range with 50 Ω match from 24 GHz up to 44 GHz. Performance attributes of the ADMV1013 and ADMV1014 ease the design and implementation of small 5G millimeter wave (mmW) platforms that cover the popular 28 GHz and 39 GHz bands in backhaul and fronthaul, as well as many other ultrawide bandwidth transmitter and receiver applications.
