Recommended Driver Amplifiers for Marki Mixers

What is the optimal driver amplifier? One that provides the necessary gain and output power to drive your mixer over the frequency band required, while also supporting application-specific requirements such as low power consumption, low phase noise, or positive-only biasing. At Marki Microwave we design our driver amplifiers to achieve optimal performance when paired with our industry-leading mixers and IQ mixers, while also being compatible with other double-balanced, triple-balanced, and IQ mixers on the market. The table below, curated by our engineers, provides the top recommended driver amplifiers for each mixer and IQ mixer in our catalog. To view our entire amplifier selection, click here.

  • APM Series: low phase noise, positive-bias only, no sequencing
  • ADM Series: robust design, ideal for T3 mixers, no sequencing
  • AMM Series: power-efficient millimeter-wave drivers

Note: An asterisk (*) denotes the amplifier covers only a portion of the mixer’s LO operating band.
