Features and Benefits
- Conversion loss: 7 dB
- LO to RF and IF isolation: 40 dB
- Input IP3: 17 dBm
- RoHS compliant, 24-terminal, 4 mm × 4 mm LCC package
The HMC129ALC4 is a general-purpose, double-balanced monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) mixer housed in a leadless Pb-free, RoHS compliant LCC package, that can be used as an upconverter or downconverter in the 4 GHz to 8 GHz band. The HMC129ALC4 is ideally suited for applications where small size, no dc bias, and consistent IC performance are required. This mixer can operate over a wide LO drive input of 9 dBm to 18 dBm. It performs equally well as a biphase modulator or demodulator. The HMC129ALC4 eliminates the need for wire bonding, allowing use of surface-mount manufacturing techniques.

Product Lifecycle Recommended for New Designs
This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
Evaluation Kits (1)
EV1HMC129ALC4 is a fully populated, 4-layer Rogers 4350 and FR4 based evaluation board.
Use RF circuit design techniques for the circuit board used in the application. Ensure that signal lines have 50 Ω impedance, and connect the package ground leads and the exposed pad directly to the ground plane. Use a sufficient number of via holes to connect the top and bottom ground planes. The evaluation circuit board is available from Analog Devices, Inc.
Tools & Simulations
ADIsimRF is an easy-to-use RF signal chain calculator. Cascaded gain, noise, distortion and power consumption can be calculated, plotted and exported for signal chains with up to 50 stages. ADIsimRF also includes an extensive data base of device models for ADI’s RF and mixed signal components.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
