The required LO power and frequency range are +5 dBm and 16.0 GHz . The LO and IF port are both equipped with female SMA connectors and the RF port is a WR-12 waveguide with a UG-387/U flange.
Model SFS-73336315-12SFKF-E1-M is an E Band sub-harmonically pumped mixer that utilizes high performance GaAs MMIC chips to offer superior RF performance. The required LO frequency and power are 35 to 38 GHz and +16 dBm, respectively. The mixer exhibits 15 dB nominal conversion loss in the RF frequency band of 70 to 76 GHz. The amplitude unbalance is within ±1 dB and phase unbalance is ±20 degrees typically. IF frequency bandwidth is from DC to 5 GHz.
Model SOM-94308315-10-M1is a W-Band mechanically tuned gunn oscillator utilizing a high performance InP Gunn diode and proprietary cavity design to deliver +15 dBm typical power directly with a frequency tuning range of 90 to 98 GHz. Product delivers low AM/FM noise and harmonic emissions in the wide mechanical tuning range. The Gunn oscillator is equipped with a micrometer tuner for quick frequency tuning and setting as bench top equipment.
Models SWF-65302350-15-B1, SWF-61302350-15-B1, SWF-63302350-15-B1 and SWF-58302350-15-B1 are V band, waveguide bandpass filters designed for WiGig applications. All four filters offer a 2 GHz passband with 50 dB typical rejection. The filters also have a nominal insertion loss of 2.5 dB. Since both low and high end cut off frequencies can be selected by modifying the design, custom models are available.
