HMC218 S-Parameters and IF Port Matching

Hi,

 

I plan on using the RF Mixer HMC218BMS8GE as a downconverter in my design.  Could you please send me the S-Parameters?  I could not find them on the website.

 

Also, how would you recommend terminating the IF port of the mixer.  I have read that for mixers, and double balanced mixers in particular, to get the best performance, the IF port should see a broadband 50 Ohm match.  Many times, people use diplexers to achieve this match which also filter the RF Signal.  What does Analog do to ensure optimal performance?

 

 

Thanks,

Zach Kabelac
