My customer will use BiCMOS mixers for RF up/down converters(ex HMC686, HMC687,.....).
The customer does not want to use a balun in IF stage to reduce MC.
Could you please provide the reference matching circuit using only RLC without a balun ?
My customer has questions about the power of HMC68x series(ex:HMC686, HMC687.....).
1. In the datasheet, there are the graphics which VCC1,2,3 = 3.3V is used for low power consumption as shown below.
What is the effective power range of HMC68x ?
My customer want to design various Up/Down converter block using BiCMOS Mixers(ex.HMC686, HMC687.....).
According to the application circuit of these mixers, balun is recommended for single-ended type in IF stage as below.
But, the customer want to…
