Microlithic mixers feature the most sophisticated double balanced mixer construction available in the world. These mixers are designed through rigorous computer simulated iterations to yield optimal designs. They have extremely high isolations, flat conversion loss across a broad bandwidth, and an extremely compact package. Unlike GaAs MMICs, they use Silicon schottky diodes for low noise and use a low LO drive level.
Microlithic mixers are highly repeatable and suitable for high volume production. They are highly recommended for all new designs.
