Mixer Translates Signals To 6 GHz

April 6, 2012

Model LTC is a wide-dynamic-range downconverting mixer from Linear Technology designed to translate input signals from 4 to 6 GHz to intermediate-frequency (IF) signals to 1 GHz. The mixer has single-ended 50-O RF and local-oscillator (LO) input ports. It features an input third-order intercept point (IIP3) of +25.9 dBm (at 5250 MHz) and is ideal for wireless systems such as point-to-point broadband microwave links, 5-GHz license-free band WiMAX radios, satellite receivers, radar systems, avionics, public safety radios, and RF test systems. It also delivers high conversion gain of 7.4 dB at 5250 MHz thanks to an integrated IF amplifier and a noise figure of 11.3 dB, also at 5250 MHz. It operates on a single +3.3-VDC supply drawing typically 194 mA current. It includes an LO buffer amplifier which requires only +2-dBm LO drive level. It also has a power-down feature with 0.6-microsecond turn-on/turn-off time. The mixer is supplied in a 16-lead, 4 x 4 mm plastic QFN package. P&A: $8.50 each in 1000 qty.; stock.
