Product Details

The HMC292A chip is a miniature, passive, gallium arsenide (GaAs), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), double balanced mixer that can be used as an upconverter or a downconverter within the 14 GHz to 32 GHz RF frequency range with a small chip area. Excellent isolations are provided by an on-chip balun that requires no external components and no dc bias. All data is measured with the chip in a 50 Ω test fixture connected via 0.076 mm (0.003 inches) ribbon bonds of minimal length <0.31 mm (<0.012 inches).


  • Microwave and very small aperture terminal (VSAT) radios
  • Test equipment
  • Point to point radios
  • Military electronic warfare (EW); electronic countermeasure (ECM); and command, control, communications and intelligence (C3I)

Tools & Simulations

Design Tools


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.

Design Resources

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.
