Frequency mixers are used to create a new signal once two different signals are applied to them. Teledyne Microwave Solutions supplies several different models of Frequency Mixers with varying frequency operating ranges available in standard TO-8, TO-8H, Surface Mount Mixer, and standard Teledyne Microwave Solutions Hi-Rel MixerPak configurations. Teledyne Microwave Solutions Mixer product line uses Schottky diodes and transformers in either double or triple balanced designs covering DC to 20 GHz. Teledyne Microwave Solutions Hi-Rel MixerPak™ is a seam-sealed hermetic package containing fired in glass feed-thrus, which prevent flux contamination for military or space applications. To make specifying mixers for military or space applications easier, Teledyne Microwave Solutions has developed a screening flow based on MIL-DTL-28837. Triple balanced designs will have pre burned-in diodes and do not receive burn-in at the module level.
This direct IQ demodulator down-converts RF signals to analog In-phase and Quadrature IF or IQ baseband components. It’s ideal for RF instrumentation, wireless communications, broadcast monitoring, spectral analysis, and software-defined radio applications.
