MLD201 - SampleFlex NCO/Mixer

Complex Mixing is a fundamental piece of any radio chain and is best used at converter rates to unlock the entire spectrum provided by the converter device. SampleFlex technology allows our IP cores to process multiple samples at a time to overcome fmax restrictions.

Unlock sample rates >> fMax by consuming multiple samples per clock.

Inputs and outputs are highly adjustable with paramaters to fit your designs to ease integration.

MLD201 utilizes the cordic algorithm to avoid multipliers and spurious components often found with the lookup table approach. The MLD201 can be used for both sine/cosine generation and complex (IQ) mixing.
