MACOM’s MAMXSS0010 is a passive mixer that
achieves the performance of a double balanced
diode mixer in a lead-free surface mount plastic
SOIC-8 package. The MAMXSS0010 is ideally
suited for use where high level RF signals and very
wide dynamic range are required.
Typical applications include frequency up/down
conversion, modulation, demodulation in systems
such as base station receivers and transmitters for
DCS1800, PCS and PHS applications.
The MAMXSS0010 uses FETs as mixing elements
to achieve very wide dynamic range in a low cost
plastic package. The mixer operates with LO drive
levels of +11 dBm to +23 dBm. No DC bias is
MACOM’s MAMXSS0010 is fabricated using a
mature 1-micron GaAs process. The process
features full IC passivation for increased
performance and reliability.
