M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (MACOM) has rolled out a broadband sub-harmonic pumped mixer aimed at cost sensitive applications covering the 14-32GHz frequency range and IF frequencies from DC-7GHz. The MAMX-011009 is packaged in an ultra small 1.5 x 1.2mm TDFN surface mount, promising customers an easy, efficient and space-saving broadband solution, noted the firm.

The mixer has a single RF port, requires no biasing and has excellent 2xLO and 3xLO isolation eliminating the need for extra filtering. The device requires 15dBm of LO power that can be easily attained by implementing the MAAM-011101, which is a single bias low cost 4-20GHz buffer amplifier offered by MACOM.

The MAMX-011009 can be used for up or down frequency conversion. The mixer integrates an 180 balanced diode topology that allows the LO to be injected at half the LO mixing frequency, which improves isolation and simplifies system requirements for the customer, the company stated.

Samples of MAMX-011009 are available from stock.
