Hittite Intros New SMT Double-Balanced Mixer for LTE/4G Infrastructure
Integrated GaAs MMIC Mixer Features High Isolation and Low LO Drive!
MA, 2/24/2010 - Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for
communication & military markets, has introduced a new GaAs MMIC Mixer with Integrated LO Amplifier, which is
ideal for broadband, LTE/4G, and test equipment applications from 0.5 to 2.7 GHz.
HMC915LP4E is a double-balanced GaAs MMIC Mixer with Integrated LO Amplifier which is rated from 0.5 to 2.7
GHz. This wideband converter provides 32 dB of LO to RF isolation, and can be used in both upconversion and
downconversion applications. The
HMC915LP4E features low conversion loss of 8 dB, high input IP3 of +28 dBm, and is well suited for high side
and low side LO frequency plans with a wide IF bandwidth of up to 1 GHz. The HMC915LP4E Mixer with Integrated LO
Amplifier consumes only 88 mA from a single +5 V supply, and features a flexible LO input range of -2 to +6 dBm,
allowing it to be driven directly from a synthesizer output.
HMC915LP4E is housed in a compact RoHS compliant 4 x 4 mm QFN SMT package and is pin for pin compatible with
HMC915LP4E double-balanced mixer with integrated LO amplifier, which is rated from 1.7 to 4.0 GHz.
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 purchase order. Released data sheets are available on-line at
