Linear公司的LTC5566是双路可编程增益下变换混频器,每路采用有源混频器和15.5dB增益控制范围的数字IF VGA,每路的IF增益通过SPI每步可编0.5dB,35dBm输出IP3,工作电压3.3V,主要用在4G和5G MIMO接收器,分集接收机,分布式天线系统(DAS),网络测试/监视设备,软件定以无线电(SDR).本文介绍了LTC5566主要特性,框图,测试电路和应用电路,以及演示板DC2460A主要特性,电路图和材料清单.

The LTCR5566 dual programmable gain downconvertingmixer is ideal for diversity and MIMO receivers that requireprecise gain setting. Each channel incorporates an activemixer and a digital IF VGA with 15.5dB gain control range.The IF gain of each channel is programmed in 0.5dB stepsthrough the SPI.

Programmable RF input tuning via the SPI or parallelcontrol lines makes the device attractive for widebandradio applications. Furthermore, a reduced power modeis available, programmed through the SPI.

Integrated RF transformers provide single-ended 50Ω inputs.The differential LO input is designed for single-endedor differential drive. The differential IF output simplifiesthe interface to differential IF filters and amplifiers. Themixers are optimized for use up to 5GHz but may be usedup to 6GHz with degraded performance.

演示板DC2460A

Demonstration circuit 2460A is optimized for evaluationof the LTC®5566 dual programmable gain downconvertingmixer. Each channel incorporates an active mixer and adigital IF VGA with 15.5dB gain control range. The IF gainof each channel is independently programmable throughthe SPI in 0.5dB steps. Its single-ended RF ports are tunablevia the SPI or parallel control lines and have a rangefrom 300MHz to 6GHz. The LO port is always matched to50Ω from 150MHz to 6GHz with 10dB return loss. The

differential IF port is usable from 1MHz to 500MHz. Thereis a reduced power mode available through the SPI, whichlowers the total current consumption by 25%.
