Marki continues to lead the industry in quadrature coupler technology with 
two new product releases and a new IQ/SSB/IR Mixer Basics Application Note.
Marki is expanding our line of MMIC quadrature hybrids (the MQH series) and quadrature splitters (the MQS series) with six new products in the S, C, X, and Ku bands. Each model is available as a bare die or in a connectorized module, and all offer excellent phase and amplitude balance over unprecedented bandwidths in a small form factor.
 
MQH products are true quadrature hybrids in the sense that all four ports are identical, making them suitable for all quad hybrid applications including reflectionless filters, reflective phase shifters, reflective variable attenuators, balanced amplifiers, Butler matrices, and of course IQ, image reject, and single sideband mixers (on either the LO or IF port).

MQS products are quadture splitter/combiners. They are best used in a single configuration (with port 1 as the input) and offer broader bandwidths with the same excellent phase balance. However, they are not as good in reflective applications. They are still suitable for use in IQ/IR/SSB mixers and other applications where a single quadrature split or combination is required.

All three filters feature a low 1.5 dB insertion loss, excellent 15 dB return loss, and 30 dB ultimate rejection.
 These filters are tiny at only 1.25 mm2. With their small footprint and low insertion loss, these filters can easily be inserted as pre-select or image reject filters at RF front-ends or as clean up filters in clock paths. Our MMIC process ensures highly repeatable performance and scalability for high volume applications. MFB-2400MFB-2500, and MFB-3450 are available today in wire-bondable die.

Marki Microwave is introducing 3 new passive GaAs MMIC mixers, each covering RF/LO from 2 to 12 GHz and IF DC to 3 GHz. These broadband mixers are of similar design offering exceptional port-to-port isolations with LO-IF approaching 50dBc.

What differentiates each mixer is the LO drive required and the resultant linearity. The MM1-0212L will operate with as low as +1dBm LO drive and provide IIP3 up to +14dBm at nominal drive levels of +9dBm. The MM1-0212H has a nominal LO drive of +15dBm with IIP3 of +23dBm. For the most demanding applications we offer the MM1-0212S with nominal LO drive of +20dBm (up to +23dBm) and an outstanding IIP3 of +29dBm.
