HMC8192 is a passive wideband I/Q MMIC mixer that can be used either as an image reject mixer for receiver operations or as a single sideband upconverter for transmitter operations. With an RF and LO range of 20 GHz to 42 GHz, and an IF bandwidth of DC to 5 GHz, the HMC8192 is ideal for applications requiring wide frequency range, excellent RF performance, and a simpler design with fewer parts and a smaller printed circuit board (PCB) footprint. A single HMC8192 can replace multiple narrowband mixers in a design.
The inherent I/Q architecture of the HMC8192 offers excellent image rejection and thereby eliminates the need for expensive filtering for unwanted sidebands. The mixer also provides excellent LO to RF and LO to IF isolation and reduces the effect of LO leakage to ensure signal integrity.
Being a passive mixer, the HMC8192 does not require any DC power sources. It offers a lower noise figure compared to an active mixer, ensuring superior dynamic range for high performance and precision applications.
The HMC8192 is fabricated on a GaAs MESFET process and uses Analog Devices, Inc., mixer cells and a 90-degree hybrid. It is available in a compact 4 mm × 4 mm, 25-lead LGA package and operates over a −40°C to +85°C temperature range. An evaluation board for this device is also available.
