IRVINE, Calif. –RF and microwave components specialist Pasternack Enterprises Inc. in Irvine, Calif., is introducing the PEM010 millimeter wave transmitter module for developing multi-gigabit, high-speed, point-to-point wireless communications links.

These communication links provide low-cost, gigabit wireless throughput for a variety of applications involving telecommunications last-kilometer distribution, telecommunications cellular backhaul, millimeter wave wireless gigabit Ethernet data communications, building-to-building high speed networks, and mesh-based LAN infrastructures.

The PEM010 operates in the global unlicensed frequency spectrum from 57 to 64.8 GHz. It also supports IEEE 802.11ad and 802.11aj Wi-Fi protocols for wireless multi-gigabit high-speed networking.

This module's design incorporates a silicon germanium MMIC-based frequency synthesizer and power amplifier. Its aluminum package has a waveguide interface with low-loss transition between the chip and WR-15 waveguide port. A multi-pin ST4 connector provides power, reference clock, digital control port, and baseband signals.

Typical performance of the PEM010 includes 38 dB gain, +12 dBm output P1dB, 34 dB image rejection, 1.8 GHz modulation bandwidth, and phase noise of -111 dBc/Hz @ 10 MHz offset.

Either of the two reference clocks set the 540 MHz or 500 MHz channel spacing. This module's I/Q analog baseband interface accepts analog baseband signals, and its optional baseband input supports FSK/MSK modulation for non-coherent applications and the WR-15 waveguide port can support gain horn antennas for extended transmission ranges.
