The HMC560A chip is a gallium arsenide (GaAs), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), double balanced mixer that can be used as an upconverter or downconverter from 24 GHz to 38 GHz in a small chip area. This mixer requires no external component or matching circuitry.
The HMC560A provides high local oscillator (LO) to RF and LO to intermediate frequency (IF) suppression, 40 dB and 44 dB, respectively, due to optimized balun structures. The mixer operates with LO amplitudes from 9 dBm to 15 dBm.
- Point to point radios
- Point to multipoint radios and very small aperture terminal (VSAT) radios
- Test equipment and sensors
- Military end use
