TriQuint's ML483 is a high linearity converter combining a passive GaAs FET mixer with an integrated LO driver in an ultra small MSOP-8 package for wireless base stations and repeaters. The RFIC is able to operate across a 0.7 to 1 GHz frequency range to achieve +36 dBm input IP3 while drawing a very low 50 mA current from 0 dBm of LO drive level. The ML483 is footprint compatible with its high-band sister product, the ML485.
