Integrated Balanced Mixer, LO Buffer and LO
+23.0 dBm Input Third Order Intercept (IIP3)
+2.0 dBm LO Drive Level
4x4mm QFN Package
100% RF and DC Testing
RoHS* Compliant and 260°C Reflow Compatible
M/A-COM Tech’s 17.0-34.0 GHz GaAs
packaged up-converter has an input third order
intercept point of +23.0 dBm and 10.0 dB of
conversion loss. The device consists of a
balanced resistive pHEMT mixer, LO buffer
amplifier and LO doubler packaged in an
industry standard, fully molded 4x4mm QFN
package. IF and *IF mixer inputs are provided
and an external 180 degree hybrid is required.
The device includes on-chip ESD protection
structures and DC by-pass capacitors to ease
the implementation and volume assembly of the
packaged part. This device is well suited for
Millimeter-wave Point-to-Point Radio, LMDS,
SATCOM and VSAT applications.
