Now available from Link Microtek is one of the most extensive mixer product lines on the market. Manufactured by L-3 Narda-MITEQ, the family of mixers comprises more than 400 standard models, offering a wide variety of configurations for operating frequencies from 1GHz all the way up to 50GHz.

Primarily aimed at up- and down-converter applications in communication, radar and electronic-warfare systems, the range includes numerous Schottky-diode mixers in single-, double- and triple-balanced designs, as well as several MESFET-based mixers, which are ideal for use wherever high dynamic range is the paramount consideration.

The majority of the mixers are double-balanced Schottky types, with different series covering requirements for ultra-broadband operation, high isolation and wide IF bandwidth.

There are also several double-balanced integrated modules, which feature a built-in low-noise IF amplifier to save space and reduce component count.

Coaxial connectorised, surface-mount and microstrip package styles are available, and many of the devices feature a high-reliability hermetically sealed construction utilising a Kovar chassis.

In addition to the range of standard products, L-3 Narda-MITEQ can also design and manufacture customised microwave mixers to meet the requirements of specific applications, including space-qualified systems.
