Pasternack Introduces 60 GHz mm-Wave Transmitter Module

Pasternack has introduced the PEM010, a complete millimeter wave transmitter module that is ideal for use in the development of multi-gigabit, high-speed, point-to-point wireless communication 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, is a highly integrated millimeter wave transmitter (Tx) module that 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. The design of this module incorporates a silicon germanium (SiGe) MMIC-based frequency synthesizer and power amplifier. It is available in a small, lightweight, low-cost aluminum package that is precisely machined and features a complete waveguide interface with low-losses between the chip and WR-15 waveguide port. A multi-pin ST4 connector is used for 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, up to 1.8 GHz modulation bandwidth, and Phase Noise of -111 dBc/Hz @ 10 MHz offset. Either of the two reference clocks can be used for setting the 540 MHz or 500 MHz channel spacing. This module's I/Q analog baseband interface accepts analog baseband signals, which provides flexibility in design and applications. The optional baseband input supports FSK/MSK modulation for non-coherent applications and the WR-15 waveguide port can support available gain horn antennas for extended transmission range applications.

Pasternack's PEM010 Tx module is in-stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity. Click here for more information on this product
