MMIC X3 Multiplier Die
Mini-Circuits’ new CY3-453-D+ MMIC X3 multiplier die converts input signals from 6.66 to 15 GHz into output signals from 20 to 45 GHz. With an input power range from +12 to +17 dBm, it’s an excellent candidate for frequency conversion in mmWave applications including 5G backhaul systems, Satcom, radar and more.
Digital Step Attenuator
Mini-Circuits continues to expand our selection of connectorized components covering wide operating bandwidths well into the mmWave range to support your full signal chain. With an operating frequency range from 0.1 to 50 GHz, our new ZX76-50G-30-V+ digital step attenuator is an ideal solution for signal conditioning and gain control in test setups and assembled systems from 5G equipment to Satcom and Radar through Ka-Band, and more!
Adapter Patch Panels
Mini-Circuits’ adapter patch panels provide clean, organized management of cable runs and connections in complex, high-volume test setups. In addition to dozens of custom structures, we now offer six popular configurations for purchase directly from our webstore, made to order in as little as 2 weeks.
IQ Mixer MMIC Die
Mini-Circuits’ new SMIQ-653H-D+ MMIC IQ mixer die provides an RF and LO frequency range from 18 to 65 GHz and an IF bandwidth from DC to 20 GHz. This model is usable as a single-sideband upconverter in transmit applications and an image-reject mixer in receiver applications including mmWave 5G, Satcom, radar and more.
We're excited to introduce a new family of right-angle waveguide adapters for customers working in high-frequency OTA testing and...
Linearity – Cascaded P1dB and IP3 for a Simple Microwave Front-End
This installment of our Every Block Covered series reviews basic cascade analysis for linearity parameters P1dB and IP3 (input and output) in a simple microwave front end chain. Step-by-step calculations will be shown using Mini-Circuits components for illustration.
Mini-Circuits is expanding our lineup of frequency mixers to give you more options and more capabilities for frequency conversion in the mmWave range. Our latest release, ZMDB-653-E+ covers an LO/RF frequency range from 20 to 65 GHz
MMIC Technologies: Integrated Passive Devices (IPD)
In this installation of our series on MMIC technologies, we explore the ins and outs of Integrated Passive Devices (IPDs). Learn the fundamentals of MMIC passives, some key differences with active MMICs, how they're fabricated, and the many benefits they offer system designers.
Every Block Covered: Noise and Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) in a Simple Microwave Front-End
We're pleased to introduce a new series on our blog following a theme of every block covered. Each article will investigate different considerations for designers utilizing multiple Mini-Circuits parts in common architectures in RF transceiver chains. The inaugural post explores the basic calculations to determine system noise and signal to noise ratio in a simple RF front end, as well as cascade analysis for noise figure and gain.
Peak and Average Power Sensors
We've expanded our selection of peak and average power sensors again to give you more options for your test bench. Our new 8 GHz model offers the same capability for peak, average, crest factor and duty cycle measurements of CW, modulated and pulsed waveforms as the recently-released 40 GHz model, but with extended dynamic range and a lower price point for applications through C-Band.
Using LTCC Thru-Lines as Filter Placeholders
Mini-Circuits TPCN-series of LTCC thru-lines are can be used as placeholders for drop-in compatible filters that may be added to the signal chain late in the design process. Learn how savvy designers utilize these handy building blocks in a variety of systems for added flexibility in the filter evaluation process.
