We have a SDR design using the passive mixer PE 4140-52 and are looking for a better alternative from ADI, preferably with amplification. I have concerns about its bandwidth; it can supply the range (up to 6GHz) that we're looking for, but I'm worried about the frequency response of the passband out of that mixer.
Please advise ASAP !
The PE4140-52 is a mixer switching core. Performance and applications are strongly dependent on external baluns. The ADI offerings are more complete mixers (plus internal IF amplifiers).
Can we get more technical details? On a high level we have manydifferent options:
