ADL5802:  Dual Channel High IP3 100 MHz TO 6 GHz Active Mixer

Product Details

Product Status:Recommended for New Designs

The ADL5802 uses high linearity, double-balanced, active mixer cores with integrated LO buffer amplifiers to provide high dynamic range frequency conversion from 100 MHz to 6 GHz. The mixers benefit from a proprietary linearization architecture that provides enhanced input IP3 performance when subject to high input levels. A bias adjust feature allows the input linearity, SSB noise figure, and dc current to be optimized using a single control pin. The high input linearity allows the device to be used in demanding cellular applications where in-band blocking signals may otherwise result in degradation in dynamic performance. The balanced active mixer arrangement provides superb LO to RF and LO to IF leakage, typically better than −30 dBm.

The IF outputs are designed for a 200 Ω source impedance and provide a typical voltage conversion gain of 7.6 dB when loaded into a 200 Ω load.

The ADL5802 is fabricated using a SiGe high performance IC process. The device is available in a compact 4 mm × 4 mm, 24-lead LFCSP package and operates over a −40°C to +85°C temperature range. An evaluation board is also available.

    Recommended PLL's for the ADL5802

    • For high performance with integrated VCO, we recommend the ADF4350.
    • For lower cost, power and size with integrated VCO, we recommend the ADF4360-X family of fixed frequency PLL's.
    • For higher performance, higher frequency and faster locktimes, we recommend the discrete Integer-N, ADF4106 or the discrete Fractional-N ADF4156.
    Recommended RF/IF Differential Amplifiers for the ADL5802
    • For adjustable gain with external resistor, we recommend the AD8351.
    • For ultralow distortion and adjustable gain with external resistor, we recommend the AD8352.
    • For ultralow distortion, pin strappable gain adjust, we suggest the ADL5561.
    Recommended Power Solutions
    • For selecting voltage regulator products, use ADIsimPower.
