The new integrated up-converter has a typical conversion gain of 12 dB, an image rejection of 15 dBc and is integrated with a LO doubler, LO buffer amplifier, and RF buffer amplifier. The MAUC-011003 is assembled in a lead-free 4 mm 24-lead PQFN plastic package. According to Macom, the device eliminates the need for a Tx filter.
