The LTM9013 is a 300MHz wideband, low IF receiver. Utilizing an integrated system in a package (SiP) technology, it is a μModule® (micromodule) receiver that includes a dual high speed 14-bit A/D converter, lowpass filter, differential gain stages and a quadrature demodulator.
The LTM9013 is perfect for wideband I/Q receiver applications, with AC performance that includes 59dB SNR and 1.3dB frequency flatness from DC to 300MHz. A highpass filter or simple AC coupling are used external to the device for design flexiblity. The integrated on-chip broadband transformers provide a 50Ω single-ended interface at the RF input.
A 5V supply powers the demodulator and a 3.3V supply powers the IF amplifiers for minimal distortion. A 1.8V supply allows low power ADC operation. A separate output supply allows the DDR LVDS outputs to drive 1.8V logic. An optional multiplexer allows both channels to share a digital output bus. An optional clock duty cycle stabilizer allows high performance at full speed for a wide range of clock duty cycles.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit DC1931 is a 300MHz wideband/digital pre-distortion (DPD) receiver subsystem featuring the LTM9013. The DC1931 card is designed to plug into the DC1371 data acquisition demo board. It is configured with an IF highpass filter, designed to provide a corner frequency of approximately 1MHz. Other corner frequencies may be realized by changing a small number of element values on the DC1931; see the LTM9013 data sheet for details.
