6-10 GHz (C, X Band) High IP3 I/Q Mixer

    Key Features

    • High IP3
    • Image rejection: 30 dB
    • Low conversion loss
    • Pb-free RoHS compliant 4x4 mm SMT package
    • Wide IF bandwidth

    Qorvo's CMD257C4 is a high IP3 I/Q mixer in a leadless surface mount package that can be used as either an image reject mixer or a single sideband upconverter. The CMD257C4 utilizes two double balanced mixer cells and a 90 degree hybrid. An external IF hybrid is needed to complete the image rejection. The CMD257C4 is a much smaller alternative to higher cost hybrid image reject mixers and single sideband upconverter assemblies.

    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.
