I/Q MMIC Mixers
Hittite Microwave introduces seven GaAs MMIC I/Q mixers targeted to VSAT, microwave radio, test equipment, sensor and military applications from 6 to 23.6 GHz. The HMC526, HMC527 and HMC528 GaAs MMIC I/Q mixer die offer IF bandwidth of up to DC to 3.5 GHz, conversion loss as low as 7.5 dB and Input IP3 as high as +30 dBm. For applications where a surface mount package is preferred, the HMC521, HMC523, HMC525 and HMC526 are now available in RoHS compliant, leadless 4 × 4 mm SMT packages. The HMC521LC4, HMC523LC4, HMC525LC4 and HMC526LC4 GaAs MMIC I/Q mixers provide RF/LO coverage from 4 to 23.6 GHz with DC to 3.5 GHz IF bandwidth, and Input IP3 as high as +28 dBm. Image Rejection and LO to RF isolation are up to 40 dB and 50 dB respectively.
