I need to use the HMC575LP4 already in my design with the following Fin= 2.5-3Ghz and Fout 5-6GHz.
Will it work? What kind of degradation should I expect?
Thanks for your fast answer
As you know the HMC575LP4 is designed with a 3.0GHz - 4.5GHz input and a 6.0GHz to 9.0GHz output frequency range in mind. You would be using outside of the specified range so please understand that we can't guarantee the performance. I would recommend evaluating the electrical performance using a couple of our evaluation boards at conditions that slightly exceed your expected system bias levels and temperature (assuming the maximums will not be exceeded), then duplicating this effort in your application. That being said, assuming you operate at a drive level greater than 3dB, it looks like the primary parameters that will be impacted are isolation and power and input return loss.
