The MAX9985 high-linearity, dual-channel downconversion mixer is designed to provide approximately 6dB gain, +28.5dBm of IIP3, and 10.5dB of noise figure (NF) ideal for diversity receiver applications. With a 700MHz to 1000MHz RF frequency range and a 570MHz to 865MHz LO frequency range, this mixer is ideal for lowside LO injection architectures. In addition, the broad frequency range makes the MAX9985 ideal for GSM 850/950, 2G/2.5G EDGE, WCDMA, cdma2000®, and iDEN® base-station applications.
The MAX9985 dual-channel downconverter achieves a high level of component integration. The MAX9985 integrates two double-balanced active mixer cores, two LO buffers, a dual-input LO selectable switch, and a pair of differential IF output amplifiers. In addition, integrated on-chip baluns at the RF and LO ports allow for single-ended RF and single-ended LO inputs. The MAX9985 requires a typical 0dBm LO drive. Supply current is adjustable up to 400mA.
The MAX9985 is available in a 36-pin thin QFN package (6mm x 6mm) with an exposed paddle. Electrical performance is guaranteed over the extended temperature range, from TC = -40°C to +100°C.
