Hittite Press Release - October 19, 2011
Hittite's New Programmable DCR Solution for Multi-Carrier,
-- Excellent Linearity, Low Noise Figure & Full Programmability
Chelmsford, MA, 10/19/2011 - Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based
solutions for communication & military markets announces the release of the
, a high-performance, flexible, Direct Conversion Receiver (DCR) radio design platform that can be configured
on-the-fly. Fully field programmable, the
platform is designed to serve as a receiver subsystem building block for various applications including cellular
basestations, microwave radio, adaptive IF strips, wireless LAN, software defined radio and test equipment.
Utilizing a robust direct conversion receiver architecture, the HMC6383
features precisely programmable 3 dB bandwidth from 3.5 MHz to 50 MHz baseband (7 MHz to 100 MHz RF) within ±2.5%
bandwidth accuracy. This unique radio design platform also provides wideband input frequency coverage from 700 MHz
to 3000 MHz with 90 dB of distributed programmable gain, and high linearity in excess of 60 dBm input IP2. The
integrated, seamless, image rejection calibration algorithm achieves 80 dB of image rejection.
enables users to offer identical hardware receiver platforms across various standards, jurisdictions, and bands of
operation, while pre-programming or field programming the receiver to suit each individual deployment. This
capability significantly reduces the cost and complexity of manufacturing, deploying, and supporting standard and
region-specific equipment. The
evaluation development kit includes a full software suite for complete configuration and control. This enables
system designers to observe and understand the effects and implications of any parameter on their overall system
design performance. Market leading performance, combined with a robust fully configurable design, makes the
evaluation platform a logical starting point in designing a modular, highly-configurable, multi-standard,
Detailed technical and product information for the
evaluation development design kit is available from the company website at

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...
