I/Q Mixer IC offers low conversion loss, high image rejection.
March 11, 2013 -
Supplied in leadless, RoHS-compliant (Pb-free), 4 x 4 mm SMT package, CMD182C4 passive 6–10 GHz I/Q mixer offers alternative to hybrid image-reject mixers and single-sideband upconverter assemblies. Pairing with external IF hybrid enables use as image reject mixer or single sideband modulator, with 5.5 dB of conversion loss and 30 dB of image rejection/sideband suppression while supporting IF bandwidth of DC to 3.5 GHz. LO to RF leakage is -35 dBm, and input P1dB is +9 dBm.

New 6-10 GHz I/Q Mixer from Custom MMIC Offers Low Conversion Loss and High Image Rejection
Westford, MA – Custom MMIC, (www.CustomMMIC.com ), a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is now offering a new passive 6-10 GHz I/Q mixer, the CMD182C4.
When paired with an external IF hybrid, the CMD182C4 can be used as either an image reject mixer or single sideband modulator, with 5.5 dB of conversion loss and 30 dB of image rejection/sideband suppression, while supporting an IF bandwidth of DC to 3.5 GHz. In addition, the CMD182C4 features very low LO to RF leakage of -35 dBm and an input P1dB of +9 dBm.
A much smaller alternative to higher-cost, hybrid image-reject mixers and single-sideband upconverter assemblies, this exciting new product is ideal for point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and digital radios as well as VSAT terminals. The CMD182C4 is housed in a leadless, RoHs-compliant (Pb-free) 4x4 mm SMT package.
