MMIC Mixers

Exceptional C, X, K, Ku, and V band I/Q and IRM MMIC Mixers for RF / Microwave Designs

Exceptional C, X, K, Ku, and V band I/Q and IRM MMIC Mixers for RF / Microwave Designs

Custom MMIC’s growing wideband mixer selection offers LO and RF frequency ranges from microwave to millimeter-wave bands, and features that serve a broad range of commercial, military, and space applications. Among these expertly designed MMIC mixers are in-phase quadrature (IQ) mixers, image rejection mixers (IRMs), and fundamental mixers, all with low conversion loss, high isolation, and positive gain slopes.

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.
