Mimix introduces 10 to 16 GHz GaAs pHEMT SMT packaged receiver

Mimix Broadband Inc of Houston, Texas, USA has introduced the XR1015-QH, a 10 to 16 GHz GaAs pHEMT SMT packaged receiver that integrates a low noise amplifier (LNA), image reject mixer and LO buffer amplifier within a fully molded 4x4mm QFN package.

Suited for point-to-point radio, LMDS, SatCom and VSAT applications, the RoHS-compliant, packaged receiver has a noise figure of 2.5 dB and conversion gain of 12 dB. The image reject mixer eliminates the need for a bandpass filter after the LNA to remove thermal noise at the image frequency, says the firm.

The device is 100% RF and DC tested. Engineering samples are available immediately, with a lead time of 14 weeks for production quantities.
