The LTC5552 is a high performance, microwave double balanced passive mixer that can be used for frequency upconversion or downconversion. The device is similar to the LTC5553, but with a broadband, differential DC to 6GHz IF port. The LTC5552 is recommended for applications where the IF frequency range extends below 500MHz. For applications where the IF frequency is always above 500MHz, the LTC5553 is recommended, since it includes an integrated IF balun.
The mixer and integrated RF balun are optimized to cover the 3GHz to 20GHz RF frequency range. The integrated LO amplifier is optimized for the 1GHz to 20GHz frequency range, requiring only 0dBm drive.
The part delivers high IIP3 and P1dB, low LO leakage and high integration in a small package.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 2668A is optimized for evaluation of the LTC5552 passive double-balanced mixer. Its RF port is broadband matched from 3GHz to 20GHz, and the internal LO amplifier, requiring only a 0dBm drive level, is broadband matched to 50Ω from 1GHz to 20GHz with 10dB Return Loss. The differential IF output is usable from DC to 6GHz. The LTC5552 can be used for upconverting and downconverting applications.
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.
