Hittite Microwave Corp. has introduced three new surface mount packaged GaAs MMIC Double Balanced Mixers which are well suited for upconverter and downconverter applications in VSAT, microwave radio, test equipment and industrial/automotive sensor applications from 14GHz to 32GHz.

The HMC260LC3B, HMC292LC3B, and HMC329LC3B passive MMIC double-balanced mixers exhibit conversion loss as low as 7.5dB, and input third-order intercept point (IP3) as high as 21dBm, while on-chip balun structures enable LO to IF and LO to RF isolations as high as 40dB.

Each mixer operates with an LO drive level as low as 9dBm, and offers a wide intermediate frequency (IF) bandwidth of DC to 8GHz. Requiring no DC voltage and no external matching circuitry, these passive double-balanced mixers are versatile enough to cover all microwave radio bands from 14GHz to 32GHz with a common package pin out.

The HMC260LC3B, HMC292LC3B, and HMC329LC3B are housed in Pb-free and RoHS compliant 3-by-3mm leadless SMT packages. Samples and evaluation PC boards are available from stock and can be ordered on line.
