Product Details

The HMC525ACHIPS is a compact gallium arsenide (GaAs), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), in phase and quadrature (I/Q), RoHS compliant mixer. The device can be used as either an image reject mixer or a single sideband upconverter. The mixer uses two standard double balanced mixer cells and a 90° hybrid fabricated in a GaAs, metal semiconductor field effect transistor (MESFET) process. The HMC525ACHIPS is a much smaller alternative to a hybrid style image reject mixer and a single sideband upconverter assembly. The HMC525ACHIPS eliminates the need for wire bonding, allowing the use of surface-mount manufacturing techniques.


  • Test and measurement instrumentation
  • Military, aerospace, and defense applications
