Product Details

The HMC6301 is a complete millimeterwave receiver integrated circuit in a 6 mm × 4 mm, RoHS compliant, wafer level ball grid array (WLBGA) that includes a low noise amplifier (LNA), an image reject filter, an RF to IF downconverter, an IF filter, an I/Q downconverter, and a frequency synthesizer. The receiver operates from 57 GHz to 64 GHz with up to 1.8 GHz of double-sided modulation bandwidth.

An integrated synthesizer provides tuning in 250 MHz, 500 MHz, or 540 MHz steps with excellent phase noise to support up to 64 QAM modulation. Optionally, an external LO can be injected allowing for user selectable LO characteristics or phase coherent transmit and receive operation, as well as modulation up to 256 QAM. Support for a wide variety of modulation formats is provided through a universal analog baseband I/Q interface.

The receiver device also contains AM and FM detectors to demodulate on-off keying (OOK), frequency-shift keying (FSK), or minimum-shift keying (MSK) modulation formats for lower cost and lower power serial data links without the need for high speed data converters.

Gain control is provided in the RF, IF, and baseband stages and a low 8 dB typical noise figure is supported at maximum gain. Together with the HMC6300 transmitter, a complete 60 GHz transmit/receive chipset is provided for multiple Gbps operation in the unlicensed 60 GHz ISM band.


  • Small cell backhaul 
  • 60 GHz industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) band data transfer 
  • Multiple Gbps data communication 
  • WiGig/802.11ad radio 
  • High definition video transmission 
  • Radar/high resolution imaging
