A GaAs (Gallium Arsenide) MMIC (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit) Image Reject Mixer is a type of microwave integrated circuit that combines multiple functions in a single chip for frequency conversion applications in communication systems and radar systems.
Part Number: XM1001
Function: GaAs MMIC Image Reject Mixer
Manufacturer: Mimix Broadband
XM1001 is GaAs MMIC Image Reject Mixer.
Mimix Broadband’s 12.0-40.0 GHz GaAs MMIC fundamental image reject mixer can be used as an up- or down-converter. The device has a conversion loss of 8.0 dB with a 20.0 dB image rejection across the band. I and Q mixer outputs are provided and an external 90 degree hybrid is required to select the desired sideband. This MMIC uses Mimix Broadband’s 0.15 µm GaAs PHEMT device model technology, and is based upon electron beam lithography to ensure high repeatability and uniformity. The chip has surface passivation to protect and provide a rugged part with backside via holes and gold metallization to allow either a conductive epoxy or eutectic solder die attach process. This device is well suited for Millimeter-wave Point-to-Point Radio, LMDS, SATCOM and VSAT applications. […]
