The T3 High Linearity/IP3 Mixer enables revolutionary system performance. In terms of two tone intermodulation (IP3), spurious intermodulation products, and 1 dB LO compression, the T3 is the world's best performing mixer. A typical mixer optimizes IP3 performance over a very narrow bandwidth. The T3 features extremely broadband and overlapping LO, RF, and IF ports. Typical mixers also usually optimize over a 3 dB range. The T3 features flexible LO drive response, improving across a 10 dB LO power range. Additional features include:

  • Low conversion loss (<7 db)="">
  • Unparalleled IMD suppression. Input third order intercept (IIP3) is typically 10 dB higher than the LO drive across the band.
  • High 1 dB compression point. The T3 compression point is approximately 1-3 dB below the LO drive level. Conventional mixers compress 5-7 dB below the LO drive level.
  • IP3 performance responds to LO risetime instead of power, allowing a low power square wave to achieve very high IIP3 performance.
