The AMMC-3040 is a broadband Double-Balanced Mixer
(DBM) with an integrated high-gain LO amplifier. This
MMIC can be used as either an up converter or down
converter in microwave or millimeter wave applications.
If desired, the LO amplifier can be biased to function as a
frequency multiplier to enable second harmonic mixing
of the LO input. The mixer section ofthe AMMC-3040
is fabricated using a suspended metal system to create
a unique, broadside-coupled balun structure (patent
pending) to achieve exceptional bandwidth. The MMIC
provides repeatable conversion loss without tuning, mak-
ing it highly suitable for automated assembly processes.
For improved reliability and moisture protection, the die
is passivated at the active areas.
