HMC8326 and HMC8327 by ADI

The HMC8326LG is a fully integrated System In Package (SiP) in-phase/quadrature (I/Q) downconverter that operates between an RF input frequency range of 71 GHz to 76 GHz and an IF output frequency range of DC to 2 GHz. This device provides a small signal conversion gain of 8 to 13 dB with 30 dBc of image rejection. The HMC8326LG utilizes a low noise amplifier followed by an image rejection mixer which is driven by a 6x LO multiplier. Differential I and Q mixer outputs are provided for direct conversion applications. Alternatively, the outputs can be combined using an external 90° hybrid and two external 180° hybrids for single-ended applications.


Applications

  • E-Band Communication Systems
  • High Capacity Wireless Backhaul
  • Test & Measurement

Features and Benefits:

  • Conversion Gain: 12 dB typical
  • Image Rejection: 30 dBc typical
  • Noise Figure: 6 dB typical
  • Input Third-Order Intercept (IP3): 1 dBm typical
  • Input Power for P1dB Compression: -9 dBm
  • Fully Integrated In Surface Mount 34 Lead 13 mm x 11 mm Package
