Product Details

The ADMV1009 is a compact, gallium arsenide (GaAs) design, monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), upper sideband (USB), differential, upconverter in a RoHS compliant package optimized for point to point microwave radio designs that operate in the 12.7 GHz to 15.4 GHz frequency range.

The ADMV1009 provides 21 dB of conversion gain with 20 dB of sideband rejection. The ADMV1009 uses a radio frequency (RF) amplifier preceded by a passive, double balanced mixer, where a driver amplifier drives the local oscillator (LO). IF1 and IF2 mixer inputs are provided, and an external 180° balun is needed to drive the IF pins differentially. The ADMV1009 is a much smaller alternative to hybrid style single sideband (SSB) upconverter assemblies and eliminates the need for wire bonding by allowing the use of surface-mount manufacturing assemblies.

The ADMV1009 upconverter comes in a compact, thermally enhanced, 4.9 mm × 4.9 mm LCC package. The ADMV1009 operates over the −40°C to +85°C temperature range.


  • Point to point microwave radios
  • Radars and electronic warfare systems
