The PVDM1V2P45G65TC is a direct conversion quadrature modulator / demodulator designed for ultra-low power communication systems. The device is optimized for the 2.4GHz ISM band having the lowest power consumption in the industry while maintaining superior linearity.
Benefits of the component include excellent amplitude and phase balance, low conversion loss with low noise figure, very low DC offset, and low power dissipation. Intermodulation products IM2 and IM3 can be optimized through adjustment. RF, LO and baseband interfaces are fully differential. The baseband outputs of the device can interface directly to baseband amplifiers or low-pass filters.
The excellent linearity of the PVDM1V2P45G65TC direct conversion quadrature demodulator can improve receiver dynamic range and significantly reduce size and cost by eliminating the need for IF signal processing components.
Performance as a modulator is equally impressive. Excellent sideband suppression and carrier leakage are achievable without adjustment. The on-channel LO input has a broad input power range from -10dBm to 0dBm. The modulator requires only a single +1V power supply for operation.
