MACOM showcases at IMS 2018 double-balanced mixers for T&M, radar applications

IMS 2018 - PHILADELPHIA. Officials at MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. are showcasing a new portfolio of wideband double-balanced mixers, covering the 8 – 43 GHz and 18 – 46 GHz frequency ranges, at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) this year [Booth #1125]. The system delivers loss, high linearity and a wide intermediate frequency (IF) bandwidth that is suited for test and measurement (T&M), microwave radio, and radar applications.

The double-balanced circuit configuration of the MAMX Series mixers provides port isolation, while internal 50-ohm matching simplifies the application. In addition, the class 1B (500 V – 1000 V) electrostatic discharge (ESD) rating ensures high levels of ruggedness and reliability. Both devices – the MAMX-011036 and MAMX-011054 – are available in compact 3 mm, 12 lead QFN plastic packaging as well as bare die formats for flexible integration.
