Product Details

The HMC553ALC3B is a general-purpose, double-balanced, gallium arsenide (GaAs), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) mixer housed in a leadless Pb-free, RoHS compliant LCC package. The HMC553ALC3B can be used as an upconverter or downconverter between 6 GHz and 14 GHz. This mixer requires no external components or matching circuitry.

The HMC553ALC3B 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 drive levels from 9 dBm to 15 dBm. The HMC553ALC3B eliminates the need for wire bonding, allowing use of surfacemount manufacturing techniques.
