The EXU7612 is a fully integrated homodyne upconverter chip designed in GaAs process technology. The chip enables the signal up-conversion from baseband to 71-76GHz. EXU7612 has an integrated differential I/Q modulator and a VGA with > 35dB analog gain control. The chip has 20dB image rejection and 20dBc LO suppression without calibration for total baseband input power Pin=-5dBm. At max gain, Tx Noise is -139dBm/Hz, P1dB, IM3 are 14dBm and 32dBc. The EXU7612 also has built-in x6 multiplier and it requires 11.8 to 12.7 GHz LO frequency to cover the low E-Band for point-to-point application.
