The HMC7584LG is fully integrated System in Package (SiP) in phase/quadrature (I/Q) upconverter that operates between an IF input frequency range of DC to 2 GHz and an RF output frequency range of 71 GHz to 76 GHz. The device uses an image rejection mixer that is driven by a 6× LO multiplier. A variable gain amplifier followed by medium power amplifier are added to the mixer outputs to provide a small signal conversion gain of 34 dB typical. Differential I and Q mixer inputs are provided and can be driven with differential I and Q baseband waveforms for direct conversion applications. Alternatively, the inputs can be driven using an external 90° hybrid and two external 180° hybrids for single-ended applications.

Product Lifecycle Recommended for New Designs
This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The EV2HMC7584LG is a fully populated 4-layer evaluation board that allows evaluation of the 71 GHz to 76 GHz HMC7584LG E-band upconverter system-in-package (SiP).
The board assembly includes 4 edge mounted SMA connectors for the differential I and Q mixer inputs as well as a single edge mounted 2.9mm connector for the LO drive input signal. The evaluation board is mounted on an aluminum backplate which includes a standard WR-12 waveguide hole pattern for the E-band signal input.
The board is equipped with LDOs for DC bias and only +5/–5V are needed for powering up the LDOs. Power detector and envelope detector outputs also are also available on the header connectors.
Please refer to the data sheet for detailed biasing requirements and application circuit information.
Tools & Simulations
ADIsimRF is an easy-to-use RF signal chain calculator. Cascaded gain, noise, distortion and power consumption can be calculated, plotted and exported for signal chains with up to 50 stages. ADIsimRF also includes an extensive data base of device models for ADI’s RF and mixed signal components.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
