6-14 GHz (C, X, and Ku-Band) Fundamental Mixer

    Key Features

    • Low conversion loss
    • High IP3
    • High Isolation
    • Wide IF bandwidth
    • Small die size

    Qorvo's CMD253 is a high IP3 double balanced mixer die that can be used for up- and downconverting applications between 6 and 14 GHz. The CMD253 has very high isolation to both the RF and IF ports due to the optimized balun structures, and can operate with an LO drive level as low as +15 dBm. The CMD253 can easily be configured as an image reject mixer or single sideband modulator with external hybrids and power splitters.
