Telecom Lead America: Integrated Device Technology (IDT), a provider of
mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, has introduced a new Zero-Distortion base
transceiver station (BTS) diversity mixer called IDT F1102.
The company claims that the new low-band RF mixer enhances the user’s
mobile connectivity experience by reducing intermodulation distortion in the
crowded frequency spectrum for 4G LTE, 3G, and 2G systems.
The mixer offers improved system third-order intermodulation distortion (IM3)
performance with reduced power consumption, covering the 450 MHz, LTE and
extended global system for mobile communications (EGSM) frequency range.
The low-distortion dual 400 – 1000 MHz RF-to-IF mixer improves IM3 by over 15
dB, while simultaneously reducing power consumption by over 40 percent compared
to standard mixers.
The company said in an official release that the performance qualities of the mixer
result in better signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for improved quality of service
(QoS), along with lowered heat dissipation to ease heat-sinking requirements.
The F1102 is ideal for multi-carrier, multi-mode 4G LTE and EGSM BTS systems.
Having observed the superior performance of our high- and mid-band mixers, our
customers are demanding this product,” said Tom
Sparkman, vice president and general manager of the Communications Division at
IDT said that IDT’s Zero-Distortion technology enables the customer to increase
the radio card’s front-end gain to improve SNR, while simultaneously reducing
distortion in the crowded EGSM and U.S. cellular bands.
The F1102 offers fast settling time and a constant local oscillator (LO) input
impedance in power-up and -down modes.
