What is the lowest freuqncy operation for IF port? For my application the IF frequency is between 1KHz to 20KHz. Can I still use ADL5801? The RF and LO frequency range is from 5 to 6 GHz.
Thanks a lot.
ADL5801 should be fine with 1kHz IF though no example has been done/seen. At such low frequency, you may have to use pull-up resistors to bias the open-collectors outputs. An example can be found in Low Freqeuncy Applications section on AD8342 data sheet (page 19-20). AD8342 is the earlier generation of active mixers that has similar output stage structure as ADL5801.
Any comments please?
