E-Band Mixer

Spacek Labs model M80‐5X2B is an E‐band mixer covering the two radio bands of 71 to 76 GHz and 81 to 86 GHz. The mixer includes an integrated LO doubler, so that the customer need only supply a 39 GHz source with +16 dBm of power. Spacek can also supply a phase‐locked source with the assembly. The conversion loss over the band is 6 dB typ and 9 dB max,with an IF frequency range of 2 to 8 GHz. The input P1dB is ‐6 dBm typ, and the bias is +12 VDC at 10 mA. The RF ports is WR‐12 waveguide, LO input port is 2.92mm coax connector and the IF port connector is SMA (f).
