Features and Benefits
- Low conversion loss: 9 dB
- No dc bias and no external matching required
- Ideal for upconversion and downconversion
- Wideband IF range: DC to 4 GHz
- Ultrasmall package: 8-Lead MINI_SO_EP
The HMC220B is an ultraminiature, double-balanced mixer in an 8-lead mini small outline package with exposed pad (MINI_SO_EP). This fundamental, monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) mixer is constructed of gallium arsenide (GaAs) Schottky diodes and planar transformer baluns on the chip.
The device can be used as an upconverter, downconverter, biphase demodulator, or phase comparator from 5 GHz to 12 GHz. The HMC220B provides excellent local oscillator (LO) to radio frequency (RF) and LO to intermediate frequency (IF) isolation due to optimized balun structures and operates as low as 7 dBm. The RoHS compliant HMC220B eliminates the need for wire bonding and is compatible with high volume surface-mount manufacturing techniques.
