CHELMSFORD, Mass. – Custom MMIC in Chelmsford, Mass., is introducing two gallium arsenide (GaAs) high IP3 I/Q monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) mixers covering C and X-Band, the CMD257C4 and CMD258C4 for RF and microwave applications. These mixers feature wide IF bandwidths and image rejection, and compact 4x4 SMT packages.

The CMD257C4 offers a wide IF bandwidth from DC to 3.5 GHz, and an RF & LO bandwidth from 6 GHz to 10 GHz. This mixer features an image rejection of 31 dB, and a conversion loss of 5.2 dB.

The CMD258C4 also delivers a image rejection of 29 dB, and a conversion loss of 5.5 dB. This mixer’s RF & LO range also covers C-band and X-band frequencies, from 7.5 GHz to 13 GHz, with an IF bandwidth of DC to 3.5 GHz.

The CMD257C4 and CMD258C4 can be used as either image reject mixers or single sideband upconverters, and are composed of two double balanced mixer cells and a 90-degree hybrid. An external IF hybrid is necessary to complete the image rejection.

These MMIC mixers come in leadless surface mount packages, and are designed to operate within specification in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius.
