MACOM`s compact mixers come in standard plastic packaging

The new 1.5mm x 1.2mm high IP3 mixer, image reject mixer, and low noise active mixer all incorporate GaAs. They provide an optimal balance of performance, space savings, and cost effectiveness
M/A-COM Technology Solutions (MACOM) has added three new discrete mixers to its portfolio.

The ultra small mixers provide a broad frequency bandwidth in standard surface mount, plastic packages, enabling system developers to achieve new levels of design versatility and cost efficiency for applications spanning test and measurement, electronic warfare, point to point wireless and more.

The MAMX-011021 high IP3 mixer supports high linearity for applications including high bit rate transmitters and receivers. This mixer covers the 5-33 GHz RF frequency range and DC-5 GHz IF frequency range, integrating a single ended cold FET structure and diplexer for approximately 9 dB of conversion loss with +22 dBm IIP3 to ensure low distortion. This mixer incorporates GaAs integrated circuits.

The MAMX-011022 image reject mixer is targeted at medium data rate, long haul, low noise systems, and is optimized for upconversion and downconversion. This mixer provides image rejection of 18 dB and covers the 5-28 GHz RF frequency range and DC-5 GHz IF frequency range, with conversion loss of 12 dB typical. This mixer incorporates GaAs and silicon Integrated circuits.

The MAMX-011023 low noise active mixer is designed for down frequency conversion and supports very low noise of 7 dB typical. This mixer covers the 4-23 GHz RF frequency range and DC-8 GHz IF frequency range, and supports conversion gain of 7 dB typical and low power consumption at 3v/15mA. This mixer is fabricated using a GaAs process which features full passivation for increased performance and reliability.

All three of MACOM’s new mixers are available in surface mount, industry standard plastic TDFN packaging, and are sized at 1.5mm x 1.2mm.

“These new additions to MACOM’s growing portfolio of mixers are ideally suited for wideband applications for which performance, ease of use and cost effectiveness are key considerations,” says Tom Galluccio, Product Manager, MACOM. “The frequency bandwidth coverage, small size and design flexibility enabled by these new mixers is unmatched by competing plastic packaged products.”

MACOM’s new mixers are sampling to customers today.

The firm will be showcasing its new mixers and portfolio of complementary products at booth #915 at IMS 2014. This event is taking place at Tampa Bay, Florida from June 1st to 6th.
