The SRM-1016 and SRM-3016 extend Stanford Microdevices' offering of silicon germanium (SiGe) active receive mixers and complement the already-released 1700 to 2300 MHz SRM-2016. The new SRM-1016 targets frequencies in the range of 800 to 1000 MHz, while the SRM-3016 covers 2300 to 2700 MHz. Both ICs are packaged in industry-standard 16-pin, exposed-pad TSSOP plastic packages, ideal for applications where space is at a premium.
The SRM-1016 provides 10 dB of conversion gain while exhibiting an IIP3 = +19 dBm and an SSB NF = 15 dB. The SRM-3016 also provides 10 dB of conversion gain while exhibiting an IIP3 = +15.5 dBm and a SSB NF=15 dB. Both parts boast excellent return loss on all three ports (20dB typical), and also exhibit very low LO leakage. The parts are designed to operate with a low LO drive level (0 dBm) and are specified for use with a single +5 V power supply.
