Product Details

The HMC292ALC3B 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 14 GHz to 30 GHz frequency range. The HMC292ALC3B is ideally suited for applications where small size, no dc bias, and consistent IC performance are required. This mixer can operate over a wide local oscillator (LO) drive level of 9 dBm to 15 dBm. It performs equally well as a biphase modulator or demodulator. The HMC292ALC3B eliminates the need for wire bonding, allowing use of surface-mount manufacturing techniques.
