30-MHz to 1.4-Hz wideband I/Q demodulator with IIP2 optimization and DC offset cancellation boosts zero-IF receiver performance
May 15, 2012 // Paul Buckley
Linear Technology has unveiled an ultra-wide bandwidth direct conversion I/Q demodulator with linearity of 31 dBm IIP3 and 70 dBm IIP2.
The LTC5584 has two built-in calibration features. One is advanced circuitry that enables the system designer to optimize the receivers IIP2 performance, increasing from a nominal 70 dBm to an unprecedented 80 dBm or higher. The other is on-chip circuitry to null out the DC offset voltages at the I and Q outputs. Combined with a 9.9 dB noise figure, these features enhance the dynamic range performance in receivers. Moreover, the device exacts P1dB of 12.6 dBm, along with its 13.6 dB noise figure under a 0 dBm in-band blocker, ensuring robust receiver performance in the presence of interference.
To enhance its flexibility for use in low IF receiver applications, the LTC5584 exhibits very low I/Q amplitude and phase mismatch. The amplitude mismatch is typically 0.02 dB, while the phase error is typically 0.25 degree, both specified at 450 MHz. This combination produces receiver image rejection of 52 dB.
With its wide bandwidth capability, the LTC5584 is ideal for multimode LTE and CDMA DPD receivers as well as other wideband receiver applications. Particularly suited for DPD, these latest generation base stations are pushing demodulation bandwidth of over 300 MHz. The LTC5584 exceeds these bandwidth requirements while delivering better than 0.5 dB conversion gain flatness. Beyond wireless infrastructure applications, the LTC5584 is ideal for military receivers, broadband communications, point-to-point microwave data links, image-reject receivers and long-range RFID readers.All news
