could this be a solution for wireless hd video?
The HMC6000/6001 silicon transceiver chipset targets 60 GHz applications such as metrocell/picocell backhaul, WiGig (IEEE 802.11ad) multi-Gbps solutions including wireless cable replacement (HDMI, USB 3.0, DisplayPort), wireless docking stations, video/magazine kiosks and wireless sensors. Fabricated with SiGe BiCMOS semiconductor process technology, the HMC6000 transmitter IC can translate analog baseband in-phase (I) and quadrature (Q) signals to a selected channel in the 60 GHz band, requiring only an external crystal oscillator.
The HMC6000 includes a low phase noise frequency synthesizer for tuning across the 57 to 64 GHz band in 500 or 540 MHz steps depending upon the reference input frequency. It features as much as 38 dB gain to achieve up to 12 dBm linear output power and 17 dBm saturated output power.
The HMC6001 receiver IC operates with single-ended input signals from a selected channel in the 60 GHz band and downconverts them to differential analog I and Q baseband signals. The receiver chip includes all necessary frequency generation, gain control, and filtering to support RF signal bandwidths of up to 1.8 GHz. It exhibits a 6 dB noise figure at the maximum gain setting and provides a 65 dB gain control range in 1 dB steps.
Both parts feature integrated phase noise of -25 dBc at the 1.76 GHz WiGig symbol rates, enabling modulation formats up to 16-state quadrature amplitude modulation (16-QAM). They both also exhibit a phase noise of typically -86 dBc/Hz at offsets 1 MHz from the carrier.(Contact company for pricing and availability)
