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?
