Microwave Point-to-Point

Description

Maxim is a leading provider of high-performance mixer, modulator, demodulator, VGA, VVA, power detector, and data converter products. Our high-linearity signal-chain components blend the best of SiGe and CMOS processes to deliver uncompromised performance with exceptional levels of block integration. Select an architecture to see how Maxim ICs can drive your future IDU, ODU, and repeater designs—from RF to bits and back again.

In this solution, diagrams are presented for point-to-point receiver stations, point-to-point transmitter stations, and base transceiver stations (BTS) repeaters.

The block diagrams provided in this solution highlight functions that can be implemented with integrated circuits from Maxim.
