Hittite Microwave Corporation’s GaAs MMIC sub-harmonic SMT mixer is suited for microwave radios, VSAT, Test & Measurement, instrumentation and military applications from 14.5 to 19.5 GHz. The HMC258LC3B is a compact sub-harmonically pumped (x2) MMIC mixer with an integrated LO amplifier housed in a 3 × 3 mm leadless ceramic SMT package. The device features a wide IF bandwidth of DC to 3.5 GHz, and high 2LO to RF isolation of 45 dB, which eliminates the need for additional filtering. It also features a LO amplifier with a nominal 0 dBm drive requirement and requires no external matching components.
