Balanced Mixers & Upconverters

  • 18 to 110 GHz Product Range
  • Very low conversion loss
  • High LO to RF Isolation
  • Low LO drive power required
  • DC biased versions available for lowest LO power usage
  • Optional SSB filters available for upconverters
  • New! Integrated mixer/multipliers available in WR-12 (E-Band)
  • The HBM series of balanced mixers and the HBUC series of balanced upconverters cover the waveguide bands from 18 - 110 GHz. Both mixer types utilize a low loss quartz structure mated to a matched pair of GaAs Schottky beam lead diodes for minimum conversion loss. Superior LO noise suppression and LO-RF isolation performance are inherent design features. Biased versions are available for both product types for use with lower LO drive levels.

    The HBUC upconverters can produce a double sideband output if desired; otherwise, an optional RF filter can be added for SSB operation (and also to further attenuate LO leakage out the RF port).

    The HBM12-X4 and HBM12-X6 integrated modules combine the HBM12 mixer with either a X4 or X6 LO multiplier chain in a common housing, reducing both size/weight and cost without sacrificing performance.
