RF Mixer RF / LO (Local Oscillator) 1.5-4.5G and IF DC-1.5G (SMA connector)
The HMC213MS8(E) is a wideband double-balanced mixer in an 8 lead plastic surface mount package. This fully integrated MMIC mixer is fabricated in a GaAs MESFET process and requires no DC bias and no external matching components. The HMc213Ms8( e) mixer integrates Schottky diode mixing elements and on-chip balun transformers to deliver excellent isolation from lo to rF and from lo to iF. The wide iF bandwidth of DC to 1.5 GHz enables this mixer to be used in a wide range of general purpose applications including upconverters, downconverters, biphase modulators, demodulators, and phase comparators. The HMc213Ms8( e) operates with lo drive levels as low as +10 dBm, and exhibits excellent 2x2 spurious suppression for demanding downconversion applications.
