HITTITE Microwave Corporation, represented in Australia and New Zealand by ASD Technology , has introduced a new high IP3 mixer with integrated LO amplifier.
This mixer is ideal for mobile/3G infrastructure applications from 0.7GHz to 1.4GHz.
The HMC483MS8G(E) has an input IP3 performance of +33dBm for down conversion and +30dBm for up conversion, which is achieved from only 0dBm of LO drive.
The high input P1dB of +24dBm rivals traditional active FET mixers while offering a much smaller standard IC footprint and the wide dc to 350MHz IF bandwidth will satisfy many GSM, CDMA Tx and Rx frequency plans.
The HMC483MS8G(E) is pin for pin compatible with the HMC485MS8G(E) which is a 1.7GHz to 2.4GHz mixer with integrated LO amplifier.
Together, these mixers allow designers to use a single PCB layout for 800MHz, 900MHz, 1900MHz and 2100MHz applications.
The HMC483MS8G(E) and the HMC485MS8G(E) are housed in RoHS compliant MSOP8GE packages.
