    Hi Novelda,
    Our company is interested in the maximum output pulse center frequency of the X2 shown in the datasheet : fc = 8.8 GHz when PGSelect = 10. For our purpose, we would like to design a radar which operates at 10GHz. So, is there a method to increase the maximum output pulse center frequency of the X2, and how? Could you please give us a raisonable solution?
    Thank you for reading my Question.

    Hi,

    Higher frequencies than stated in the datasheet is not possible, this applies to the receiver part of the system as well.

    I recommend to look at the X4 modules which supports two different bands, with upper frequency band from 8 - 9.5 GHz. See the X4 datasheet.

    Thanks Olav for your answer. I have looked at the X4 datasheet and I found that the TX center frequency fc =8.748 GHz, with upper frequency band from 8 - 9.5 GHz. Is there a method to shift that band so that the module could work in the X-band from 8.5 - 10.6 GHz?
    Thank you very much.
