The HMC8326LG is a fully integrated System In Package (SiP) in-phase/quadrature (I/Q) downconverter that operates between an RF input frequency range of 71 GHz to 76 GHz and an IF output frequency range of DC to 2 GHz. This device provides a small signal conversion gain of 8 to 13 dB with 30 dBc of image rejection. The HMC8326LG utilizes a low noise amplifier followed by an image rejection mixer which is driven by a 6x LO multiplier. Differential I and Q mixer outputs are provided for direct conversion applications. Alternatively, the outputs can be combined using an external 90° hybrid and two external 180° hybrids for single-ended applications.

Product Lifecycle Not Recommended for New Designs
This designates products ADI does not recommend broadly for new designs.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The EV2HMC8326LG is a fully populated 4-layer evaluation board that allows evaluation of the 71 GHz to 76 GHz HMC8326LG E-band low noise downconverter system-in-package (SiP).
The board assembly includes 4 edge mounted SMA connectors for the differential I and Q mixer outputs as well as a single edge mounted 2.9mm connector for the LO drive input signal. The evaluation board is mounted on an aluminum backplate which includes a standard WR-12 waveguide hole pattern for the E-band signal input.
The board is equipped with LDOs for DC bias and only +5/–5V are needed for powering up the LDOs.
Please refer to the data sheet for detailed biasing requirements and application circuit information.
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.
