Original Press Release:
New 6-14 GHz Fundamental Mixer Offers High Isolation, Low Conversion Loss
Westford, MA – Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is pleased to announce the release of the CMD177C3, a packaged 6 to 14 GHz double-balanced mixer, to their growing standard product library.
The CMD177C3 has a low conversion loss of 6.5 dB, high LO to RF isolation of 45 dBc, and a high input IP3 of +18 dBm across the 6 to 14 GHz bandwidth. The minimum LO drive requirement is +9 dBm, with saturation reached at levels above +13 dBm. Housed in a leadless, 3 mm ceramic surface mount package, the CMD177C3 can be used in both up- and down-converting systems.
Additionally, a pair of CMD177C3 components can be configured as an image reject mixer or single sideband modulator with external hybrids and power splitters. The wide IF bandwidth of DC to 5 GHz allows for the support of numerous frequency conversion plans.
Ideal applications for this new mixer are point-to-point and point-to-multi-point radios, test equipment and sensors, and military end-use.
