To satisfy GPS, telecommunication, radar, EW, and instrumentation applications, a family of wideband, double-balanced mixers has emerged. The monolithic-microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) cover the 0.7-to-10-GHz band. The CGY2180UH, CGY2181UH, and CGY2182UH use on-chip baluns to provide rejection of the local oscillator (LO) to the RF and IF paths of greater than 40 dB. Thanks to the passive-mixer structure, the MMICs flaunt a high dynamic range with an input 1-dB compression point of more than +12 dBm. The CGY2180UH was designed to operate from 0.7 to 3.7 GHz. The CGY2181UH operates from 1 to 4.5 GHz while the CGY2182UH spans 3 to10 GHz. Samples and demonstration boards are available from stock.
