CMD179C3

CMD179C3 Mixer

16-26 GHz (Ku, K Band) Fundamental Mixer MMIC

The CMD179C3 is a general purpose double balanced mixer MMIC in a leadless surface mount (SMT) package that can be used for up- and downconverting applications between 16 and 26 GHz. The CMD179C3 MMIC has very high isolation to both the RF and IF ports due to the optimized balun structures, and can operate with an LO drive level as low as +9 dBm. The CMD179C3 can easily be configured as an image reject mixer or single sideband modulator with external hybrids and power splitters.

Features

  • High isolation
  • Low conversion loss
  • Passive double balanced topology
  • Pb-free RoHS compliant 3x3 mm SMT package
  • Positive gain slope
  • Wide IF bandwidth
Space Qualified MMICs Space Qualification
  • Ready for Space Screening

Custom MMIC Space Qualified MIMCs
Space Qualification

Custom MMIC strives to design all our MMIC devices in a manner such that they can be readily chosen for your space applications. We offer turnkey space screening / testing service when a device is categorized as "Ready for Space Screening" on our website. In some cases, our devices have already been "Space Qualified" and are often available from stock. Just let us know when requesting price and delivery, or technical support, if your devices will be used in space.
