Wideband Frequency Mixer

Mini-Circuits has released a new wideband mixer, ZX05-24MH+, operating  from 7.5 to 20 GHz with an LO power of +13 dBm. The ZX05-24MH+ has low conversion loss of 7 dB typical (at 30 MHz IF), IP3 of 16 dBm, high LO-RF isolation of 30 dB typical, LO-IF isolation of 15 dB typical and wide IF bandwidth from DC to 7.5 GHz.  It has a rugged construction, small size and can be utilized as an up and downconverter. It is housed in a small coaxial package (0.74 × 30.90 × 3 0.54") with SMA connectors and is RoHS compliant.

Maximum ratings include an operating temperature of –40° to 85°C, storage temperature of  –55° to 100°C and RF power of 50 mW. The ZX05-24MH+ is well suited for applications such as fixed satellite, mobile and radio location.

Mini-Circuits offers a broad range of catalog mixers up to 20 GHz including state-of-the-art high dynamic range FET based designs with IIP3 up to +37 dBm and broadband surface-mount
designs covering 5 to 20 GHz. LO levels span 0 to +27 dBm and include both single function mixers and an integrated mixer such as image rejection and integrated LO and IF amplifiers.
