IDT diversity mixer cuts power by 40%

IDT diversity mixer cuts power by 40%

Mixed signal specialist IDT has announced what it claims is the industry's lowest power diversity mixer for 4G wireless base stations.

The device forms part of the company's Zero Distortion series and is optimised to reduce power consumption in long term evolution (LTE) and time division duplexing (TDD) wireless communication architectures.

"Our latest mixer product is yet another example of IDT's penetration into the $600million radio card market for wireless infrastructure," said Tom Sparkman, general manager and vp of the communications division at IDT. "Following the previously announced IDTF1150 and IDTF1152, the IDTF1162 offers a higher frequency input with all the industry leading benefits that our customers expect from IDT."

The company says the IDTF1162 improves IM3 distortion by 18dB while simultaneously reducing power consumption by 40%. This is designed to ease heat sinking requirements on the radio card and allow infrastructure vendors to take advantage of higher average front end gain settings. The resulting increase in signal to noise ratio expands coverage area and improves available data rates.
