Custom MMIC's expertly designed RF / Microwave MMIC mixers cover a wide range of frequency bands ranging from 6 to 46 GHz (C through V band) with a low conversion loss and high isolation between the LO and RF, and LO and IF ports. With in-phase quadrature (I/Q), image reject (IRM), and fundamental mixer designs in our library, the engineering team at Custom MMIC has developed a robust and growing catalog of solutions for the RF / Microwave designer's MMIC mixer needs. These leadless surface mount packages can be used for up-conversion or down-conversion while the IRM and I/Q mixers can be leveraged for image cancellation or as a single sideband upconverter. The IQ/IRM mixers utilize two double balanced mixer cells and a 90 degree hybrid while the fundamental mixers can be used as an IRM with external hybrids and power splitters. With die sizes as small as 3x3 mm, these MMIC mixers can serve numerous frequency conversion requirements.
The fundamental RF mixers are available in either leadless 3x3 mm quad-flat nano (QFN) surface mount technology (SMT) packages or as bare die, and can be used for up-conversion or down-conversion, natively. With the addition of external hybrids and power splitters, these MMIC mixers can also be used as image rejection mixers (IRMs). Though constantly growing, the current selection of Custom MMIC’s fundamental mixers span C-band, X-band, K-band, and Ku-band.
Both the IRM and IQ mixers come in 4x4 mm QFN package, and can be leveraged for either image cancellation or as a single sideband upconverter, without modification. The IQ/IRM mixers are constructed of two double balanced mixer cells and an integrated 90 degree hybrid. Current IQ mixers and IRMs offer LO and RF frequencies which cover C-band and X-band.
