Millitech’s Millimeter Wave General Purpose Harmonic Mixer is ideal for applications involving signal processing, phase-lock loops, EW/ELINT, and spectrum analyzers/frequency counters. They’re low cost, and feature full waveguide bandwidth, high sensitivity, and low conversion loss.
These millimeter wave harmonic mixers are available in eight waveguide bands from 18 to 140 GHz. Harmonic mixers in particular are ideal for downconverting millimeter-wave frequencies to low intermediate frequencies (IF) between 5 MHz and 500 MHz using a local oscillator (LO) in the 2 to 8 GHz range. For information on how this is accomplished, please download the available datasheet.
These millimeter wave harmonic mixers can also be used to extend the ranges of microwave frequency counters, spectrum analyzers, and similar instruments.
