RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Peregrine Semiconductor’s PE41901 mixer. The PE41901 is a MMIC, image reject mixer solution based on Peregrine’s UltraCMOS technology. Incorporating two mixers, an LO path 90 degree coupler and RF port baluns, the PE41901 offers up to 38 dB LO-RF isolation for reduced filtering requirements.
Ideal for RF applications in the 10 to 19 GHz frequency range, a high image reject value of 25 dB serves high performance point-to-point radio, VSAT and test & measurement designs. A wide LO input level is rated from 10 to 20 dBm. In addition to the high reliability inherent in UltraCMOS, this MMIC is rated at a maximum operating temperature of +105 degrees C, much higher than typical GaAs devices.
Peregrine offers this mixer in a 4 x 4 mm QFN package.
