8-15 GHz (X, Ku Band) Passive Frequency Doubler

    Key Features

    • Low conversion loss
    • Excellent Fo isolation
    • Broadband performance
    • No bias required
    • Pb-free RoHS compliant 3x3 mm SMT package

    Qorvo's CMD227C3 is a broadband MMIC GaAs x2 passive frequency multiplier in a ceramic, QFN-style package. When driven by a +15 dBm signal, the multiplier provides 11 dB conversion loss at an output frequency of 23 GHz. The Fo and 3Fo isolations are 38 dBc and 49 dBc respectively. The CMD227C3 is a 50 ohm matched design eliminating the need for RF port matching.

    X-Microwave Design System

    This product is available as an X-Microwave Block (X-MWblock) for evaluation.

    X-MWblocks are RF and microwave "drop-in" components that can be used individually for prototyping or in production assemblies. X-MWblocks are easy to test, integrate, align, and configure to 60 GHz and beyond. No messy sweat soldering or silver epoxy processes are required. X-MWblocks are highly characterized with S-parameter models and connect with a patented solder-less interconnect technology.
