Hi. In a new project, I'd like to use your HMC595AE (or HMC574AMS8E, still studying). In the data sheet I read, in Typical Application, point 3: "DC Blocking capacitors are required for each RF port as shown. Capacitor value determines lowest frequency of operation."  I have to switch a RF signal with a non-zero MEAN VALUE so my questions: may I omit the blocking capacitors? Does it work fine without those capacitors? Are there any side effects for this kind of application?
Thanks in advance.
