Custom MMIC announces high performance IP3 mixers

News

New MMIC mixers offer low conversion loss and high LO to RF isolation up to 26 GHz for demanding military, aerospace, and telecommunications applications

Custom MMIC has announced a new series of high performance IP3 fundamental mixers. The CMD253C3, CMD254C3, and CMD255C3 feature overlapping RF/LO frequencies spanning 6 GHz to 26 GHz, with each model demonstrating low conversion loss high IP3, high isolation, and wide IF bandwidth.

The mixers are said to be well suited for use as upconverters and downconverters in demanding military, aerospace, and telecommunications applications operating in the C-band, X-band, Ku-band, and K-band frequencies

This series of mixers are said to exhibit very high isolation from the RF and IF ports, in part, due an integrated and optimised balun structure.

Each of these mixers can operate with LO drive levels as low as +15dB. With the addition of external hybrids and power splitters, these devices can be configured as image reject mixers or single sideband modulators.

Conversion loss is as low as 6 dB, with LO to RF isolation as high as 48 dB. Moreover, this device series offers a LO to IF isolation that reaches 44 dB, and an RF to IF isolation as high as 30 dB. These mixers are extremely linear, with input P2dB figures typically around 15 dBm, and an input IP3 as high as 24 dBm.

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
