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.
- 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
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.
