Hittite's New SMT Mixer Targets 7 to 43 GHz Up/Downconversion Applications
Wide IF Bandwidth SMT Mixer Targets 7 - 43 GHz Up/Downconversion Applications Ideal for Microwave Radio,
Military & Space, VSAT, Test & Sensors
MA, 1/29/10 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions
for communication & military markets, has introduced a new passive GaAs MMIC Fundamental Mixer, which is ideal for
upconversion and downconversion applications in microwave radio, VSAT, military and space, test equipment and
sensor applications from 7 to 43 GHz.
This mixer requires no external components or matching circuitry and exhibits up to +22 dBm input IP3, and a
wide IF bandwidth spanning DC to 8 GHz. Due to optimized balun structures, the
HMC774LC3B provides excellent LO to RF and LO to IF suppression up to 40 dB. Typical conversion loss is 11 dB.
This wideband mixer operates with LO drive levels of +15 dBm, and exhibits consistent conversion loss and
compression across its entire operating bandwidth.
HMC774LC3B is housed in a compact RoHS compliant leadless 3x3 mm ceramic SMT package and is ideal for a wide
range of general purpose applications spanning 7 to 43 GHz. The
HMC774LC3B is also available in die format as the HMC774.
Samples and evaluation PC boards for all SMT
packaged products are available from stock and can be ordered via the company's e-commerce site or via direct
