Product Details

The HMC-C046 is a passive I/Q MMIC mixer housed in a miniature hermetic module which can be used as either an Image Reject Mixer (IRM) or a Single Sideband Upconverter. The module utilizes two standard Hittite double balanced mixer cells and a 90 degree hybrid fabricated on a GaAs MESFET process.

A low frequency quadrature hybrid was used to produce a 100 MHz Upper Side Band (USB) IF output. This MMIC based module is a more reliable and consistent alternative to hybrid style I/Q Mixers and Single Sideband Converter assemblies. The module features removable SMA connectors which can be detached to allow direct connection of the I/O pins to a microstrip or coplanar circuit.
