The HMC260ALC3B is a general-purpose, double balanced, monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) mixer housed in a leadless, Pb-free, RoHS compliant LCC package. The device can be used as an upconverter or downconverter in the 10 GHz to 26 GHz frequency range. The HMC260ALC3B mixer requires no external components or matching circuitry.
The HMC260ALC3B provides local oscillator (LO) to radio frequency (RF) and LO to intermediate frequency (IF) suppression due to optimized balun structures. The mixer operates with LO amplitude levels between 9 dBm and 15 dBm. The HMC260ALC3B eliminates the need for wire bonding, allowing the use of surface-mount manufacturing techniques.
- Point to point radios
- Point to multipoint radios and very small aperture terminals (VSATs)
- Test equipment and sensors
- Military end use

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.
