HMC558A: use as biphase modulator?

In a previous design, I used the HMC220AMS8 as a simple bi-phase modulator. The HMC220A is now obsolete and the HMC558A is the suggested replacement component.

 

Can the HMC558A be used as a bi-phase modulator? The maximum DC current at the IF port is much lower than most mixers adapted for bi-phase modulation applications.
