Custom MMIC Introduces New 6-14GHz Mixer

Offers high isolation, low conversion loss for radios, test equipment and military use

Custom MMIC, a developer of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has announced a packaged 6 to 14GHz double-balanced mixer, to its standard product library.

The CMD177C3 has a low conversion loss of 6.5dB, high LO to RF isolation of 45dBc, and a high input IP3 of +18dBm across the 6 to 14GHz bandwidth. The minimum LO drive requirement is +9dBm, with saturation reached at levels above +13dBm.  

Housed in a leadless, 3mm 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 5GHz allows for the support of numerous frequency conversion plans.

Applications for this new mixer include point-to-point and point-to-multi-point radios, test equipment and sensors, and military end-use.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
