HMC213B IF IS DC-CUT?

Hi
My customer is considering HMC213B.
The data sheet says "This passive MMiC mixer isconstructed of GaAs schottky diodes and novel planar transformer baluns on the chip."
 
Does this indicate that the IF terminal and the Lo, RF terminal are disconnected in a DC fashion?
When I connect the IC, should I connect via a capacitor or should I connect directly?
 
I imagine a circuit that combines a transformer and diodes.
If so, I think that I should connect directly. But I am not sure.

Best regards
