The XR1011-QH from Mimix Broadband, Inc. is a fully-molded QFN packaged, gallium arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) receiver that covers the 4.5 to 10.5 GHz frequency bands. The receiver integrates an image reject mixer, an LO buffer amplifier, and a low noise amplifier within a 4 × 4 mm QFN package. The image reject mixer eliminates the need for an image bandpass filter after the amplifier to remove thermal noise at the image frequency.
