The LTC5576 active double-balanced upconversion mixer provides a RF frequency range from 3 GHz to 8 GHz and promises to enhance plus a conversion loss of 2 dB at 8 GHz. Additionally the LO input’s integrated buffer needs just a 0-dBm level drive, effectively eliminating an external amplifier circuit. Residing in a 16-lead, 4 mm x 4 mm QFN package operating temperature ranges from -40°C to +105°C case. The LTC5576 is priced starting at $7.89 each/1,000.
