Mimix Broadband introduces a gallium arsenide (GaAs) hetero-bipolar transistor (HBT) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) image reject mixer, which can be used for upper- or lower-sideband operation. From 13 to 25 GHz, this mixer offers conversion loss of 8 dB with 18 dB image rejection across the band. This mixer, identified as 18KWR0327, is suited for wireless communications applications such as millimeter-wave point-to-point radio, local multipoint distribution services (LMDS), and SATCOM. Mimix performs 100% on-wafer RF testing on the 18KWR0327, as well as 100% visual inspection to MIL-STD-883 method 2010. The chip also has surface passivation to protect and provide a rugged part with backside via holes and gold metallization to allow either a conductive epoxy or eutectic solder die attach process.
