Passive Mixer (7 to 34/40 GHz): HMC774A

Source: Analog Devices

The HMC774ALC3B is a general-purpose, double balanced mixer in a leadless, RoHS compliant, surface-mount package that can be used as an upconverter or downconverter between 7 GHz and 34 GHz. This mixer requires no external components or matching circuitry. The HMC774ALC3B provides excellent LO to RF and LO to IF isolation due to optimized balun structures.

The mixer operates best with a LO drive level of 15 dBm (typical). The HMC774ALC3B eliminates the need for wire bonding, allowing use of surface-mount manufacturing techniques. Applications include Point to point radios, Point to multipoint radios and very small aperture terminals (VSATs), Test equipment and sensors, and Military end-use.
