Analog Devices’ Wideband RF Mixers Simplify Design and Significantly Reduce Time to Market for Industrial Applications

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) today introduced a series of wideband, passive, in-phase quadrature RF mixers. Supporting the entire 2.5 to 42 GHz spectrum, the HMC819x mixers provide significant benefits compared to alternative discrete options available today and are ideal solutions for industrial applications such as test and measurement and defense electronics that require wideband support. Over 10 discrete components would be required to cover this same frequency range, as compared to what can be achieved with ADI’s three new devices without any compromise in performance. ADI’s HMC819x mixers are the industry’s only wideband solutions available in a standard SMT package, allowing them to be integrated efficiently in order to decrease overall design time and risk, while speeding time to market.
