    • High LO/RF isolation > 50 dB at 8 GHz
    • Wide operating bandwidth

    Qorvo's QPX0002 is a compact, wideband I/Q GaAs mixer housed in a 4 x 4 mm air cavity surface mount plastic package. Operating over the 2.5 to 15 GHz bandwidth, the mixer can be configured as an image reject mixer, a single sideband upconverter, or a QPSK modulator/demodulator. The QPX0002 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 QPX0002 is a much smaller alternative to higher cost hybrid I/Q Mixers and single sideband upconverter assemblies.
