This 6-10 GHz I/Q Mixer from Custom MMIC offers Low Conversion Loss and High Image Rejection. When paired with an external IF hybrid, the CMD182C4 can be used as either an image reject mixer or single sideband modulator, with 5.5 dB of conversion loss and 30 dB of image rejection/sideband suppression, while supporting an IF bandwidth of DC to 3.5 GHz. In addition, the CMD182C4 features very low LO to RF leakage of -35 dBm and an input P1dB of +9 dBm.
A much smaller alternative to higher-cost, hybrid image-reject mixers and single-sideband upconverter assemblies, this exciting new product is ideal for point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and digital radios as well as VSAT terminals. The CMD182C4 is housed in a leadless, RoHs-compliant (Pb-free) 4x4 mm SMT package.
