Hittite Microwave Corporation, represented by ASD Technology in Australia and New Zealand has introduced four new Active x2 frequency multiplier modules, which provide output frequency coverage from 6 to 46 GHz.
Each of these Active x2 frequency multiplier modules provide high output power, and excellent fundamental and subharmonic suppression for Microwave Communications, RADAR, Test Equipment and general laboratory applications.
HMC-C031, HMC-C032, HMC-C033 and HMC-C034 are broadband Active X2 Multipliers utilizing GaAs PHEMT technology, and packaged in miniature hermetic 41.66 x 27.59 x 8.50 mm connectorized modules. When driven with a +3 dBm signal, these active X2 frequency multipliers deliver between +13 dBm and +17 dBm of output power, with Fo and 3Fo isolations from 12 to 30 dBc with respect to the output signal level.
The HMC-C031, HMC-C032, HMC-C033 and HMC-C034 frequency multipliers are also ideal for LO multiplier chains, exhibiting SSB phase noise as low as -140 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset. These modules incorporate DC blocked I/Os, as well as over voltage and reverse voltage protection for robust operation.
