Qorvo’s QPX0001 is a compact, wideband I/Q GaAs mixer housed in a 3.9 x 3.9 mm air cavity surface mount ceramic package. Operating over the 6 to 26 GHz bandwidth, the mixer can be configured as an image reject mixer, a single sideband upconverter, or a QPSK modulator/demodulator.
The QPX0001 utilizes two double balanced mixer cells and a 90⁰ hybrid internal to the MMIC. An external 90⁰ IF hybrid is required to complete the image rejection or sideband suppression.
The QPX0001 is a much smaller alternative to higher cost hybrid I/Q Mixers and single sideband upconverter assemblies.
