21 to 56 GHz x4 Active Multiplier Simplifies mmWave Signal Generation

21 to 56 GHz x4 Active Multiplier Simplifies mmWave Signal Generation

The new mmwave AQA-2156 active quadrupler will frequency extend your synthesizer up to 56GHz with high output power and superior harmonic suppression. Requiring only 0dBm input power and an input frequency range of 5.25 to 14GHz, this power-efficient MMIC multiplier provides greater than +20dBm 4F output power over most of the 21 to 56GHz output range, making this an ideal driver for Marki Microwave H and S diode mixers. AQA-2156 is a RoHS connectorized module designed for lab use, test and measurement, and end applications such as SATCOM, radar & 5G.

Register Now: Amplifiers for Synthesizer and Local Oscillator Generation
The Unsung Application

Many amplifiers in a typical RF/microwave system are used for single frequency applications: for local oscillator and clock generation. However, amplifiers are typically designed and characterized only for signal applications. In this short (25 minute) webinar, we will discuss:

  • Do gain flatness, IP3, and noise figure really matter for LO drivers?
  • Phase noise: the impact of amplifier selection
  • Save time with more usable amps: positive gain slope, positive only bias, and SWAP optimized drivers

Register Now: IQ, Image Reject, and Single Sideband Mixers Demystified

Quadrature mixers (IQ, Image Reject, and Single Sideband) are offer powerful capabilities and are critical to modern communication and electronic warfare systems. However, they are also among the most complex RF and Microwave circuits. In this webinar, Marki Microwave will deconstruct these powerful circuits by explaining:

  • How ‘quadrature’ signals lead to signal cancellation without filtering
  • Common compensation techniques for optimal carrier and sideband suppression
  • The best and worst ways to create quadrature signals for any application

Register Now: High Frequency Packaging from the Experts

Packaging is hard, especially to mm-wave frequencies. Even the greatest design will be ruined by inadequate packaging. Unfortunately packaging techniques are usually trade secrets that are never taught in school; this makes them inaccessible for new engineers in particular. In this webinar, Marki Microwave will lift the veil by explaining:

  • Fundamental considerations for any package technology from coaxial modules to surface mount packages.
  • Common mistakes to look for from your contract manufacturer
  • How to push your surface mount design to 40 GHz and beyond
