Millimeter-Wave Mixers
The HBM series broadband balanced mixers cover the waveguide bands from 18–110 GHz. They utilize a low loss structure mated to a matched pair of GaAs Schottky beam lead diodes for minimum conversion loss and maximum bandwidth. Superior LO noise suppression and LO-RF isolation values are inherent design features.

Balanced Mixers

The HBM series broadband balanced mixers cover the waveguide bands from 18–110 GHz. They utilize a low loss structure mated to a matched pair of GaAs Schottky beam lead diodes for minimum conversion loss and maximum bandwidth. Superior LO noise suppression and LO-RF isolation values are inherent design features.

Biased versions are available for use with lower LO drive levels. Options include IF Amplifiers, LO frequency multipliers and Gunn local oscillators. An integrated assembly with an IF amplifier and a Gunn local oscillator with isolator can also be provided. An upconverter version of this mixer is available as series HBUC.


Balanced Upconverters

The HBUC series broadband balanced upconverters cover a wide range of waveguide bands from 18–110 GHz. They utilize a low loss structure mated to a matched pair of GaAs Schottky beam lead diodes for minimum conversion loss and maximum bandwidth. Superior LO noise suppression and LO-RF isolation values are design features. Upconverters are used to create a mm-wave signal by combining a lower RF frequency with a higher mm wave frequency. Dual signals, or double sideband are produced in this way: LO ± IF (DSB). Optional RF filters are offered to filter out the unwanted sideband and produce a single sideband (SSB) up converter. Biased versions are available for lower LO drive levels.


Harmonic Mixers

The HHM series broadband harmonic mixers cover full waveguide bands from 18 – 110 GHz. They utilize a low loss finline structure mated to a GaAs Schottky beam lead diode for minimum conversion loss and maximum bandwidth. The millimeter wave RF frequency is down converted (using a low cost microwave LO) to a lower frequency which can in turn interface with a spectrum analyzer or frequency counter.

Two terminal mixers (waveguide RF, combined coaxial LO/IF port) units are available for systems equipped with an internal diplexer.

Three terminal mixers (waveguide RF, coaxial IF port, coaxial LO port) units are available for systems without an internal diplexer.
