Mimix Broadband, Inc. has introduced a GaAs monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) sub-harmonic image reject mixer for use in transmit and receive frequency conversion applications. Using GaAs HBT technology, this mixer covers the 32 to 42 GHz frequency bands. The device has conversion loss of 9 dB, with 18 dB image rejection and +14 dBm input third order intercept point (IIP3).
Designated as model XM1003-BD, the mixer is well suited for wireless
communications applications such as millimeter-wave point-to-point
radio, local multipoint distribution services (LMDS), SATCOM and VSAT.
Mimix performs 100% on-wafer RF testing on the XM1003-BD, as well as
100% visual inspection to MIL-STD-883 method 2010. The chip also has
surface passivation to protect and provide a rugged part with backside
via holes and gold metallization to allow either a conductive epoxy or
eutectic solder die attach process.
Engineering samples are available today from stock, and production
quantities will be available within 12 weeks.
