Hittite Microwave Corporation announces seven SiGe BiCMOS MMIC mixer RFICs which are suitable for up-conversion and down-conversion applications in broadband, cellular/3G, WiMAX/4G and fixed wireless systems from 700 MHz to 3.9 GHz. The HMC684LP4E, HMC685LP4E, HMC688LP4E and HMC666LP4E are SiGe BiCMOS mixer RFICs which are rated from 0.7 to 1 GHz, 1.7 to 2.2 GHz, 2 to 2.7 GHz and 3.1 to 3.9 GHz, respectively. Each product consists of a high linearity double-balanced mixer core and a matched local oscillator (LO) amplifier which combine to deliver up to 35 dBm input IP3 with 0 dBm of input LO drive. The MMICs feature singled-ended LO and RF ports, while the differential IF ports support intermediate frequencies from DC to 500 MHz.
