Analog Devices Inc. has launched a high-performance broadband I/Q quadrature modulator that incorporates automatic gain control (AGC) circuitry within a compact 6mm x 6mm lead-frame chip-scale package.

With over a 50MHz to 2200MHz frequency range, the ADL5386 backs high-data-rate complex modulation for next-generation communication infrastructure equipment. Being functionally complete, the ADL5386 includes a 25dB dynamic range output power detector and a voltage variable attenuator. Working together, they form a closed-loop automatic level control or AGC, making the ADL5386 to accurately set the output power to a user's desired level.
