For layout convenience, I want to use the LO port for RF and RF port for LO in the upconverters with these two mixers. Is there any problem of doing so? What kind of performance deterioration should I expect?
Thanks a lot.
Hello Kuangda, We do not recommend swap RF/LO ports as it can cause degraded performance especiallyfor the spurs. We do not have measured data with RF and LO ports swapped for HMC329LM3 and HMC1048LC3B so cannot quantify the degradation.
