Frequently Asked Questions About Power Splitters/Combiners
Frequently asked questions about power splitters/combiners will address general concerns as well as specific applications.
Terms and Definitions: Filters
All the terms you need to know to make informed decisions on the right filter for your application.
Characterizing and Minimizing VCO Phase Noise
The term phase noise is widely used for describing short term random frequency fluctuations of a signal. Frequency stability is a measure of the degree to which an oscillator maintains the same value of frequency over a given time.
Test Report for Mating Cycle Validation of Mini Circuits QBL Series Quick-Lock Test Cables
Mini-Circuits has introduced a quick-connect series of test cables, which is based upon an industry-unique quick lock connector that enables a quick, secure locked connection directly to a standard SMA female jack.
An Introduction to Limiters
Mini-Circuits' limiters cover a very broad frequency range from 3 KHz to 900 MHz, dynamic range from +3 to +20 dBM, and provide exceptionally hard limiting of 0.05 dB output change per dB input change.
Microwave Transceiver Kit
The UVNA-63 kit provides everything you need for a DIY vector network analyzer.
How to Select a Mixer
Select the proper mixer for your needs. There are hundreds of models available. Under-specify and face marginal performance, over-specify and pay for more than you need. Here's the proper approach.
Terms and Definitions: Directional Couplers
All the terms you need to know to make informed decisions about the right direction coupler for your application.
DAT Series Powered Through a Voltage Divider Network
The Mini-Circuits DAT series is specified to operate with supply voltages over the range of 2.7V to 3.3V. When operating over this range, the parts meet all their specified performance parameters over the operating environmental ranges.
Figure of Merit of Mixer Intermod Performance
Higher IP3, up to a point, can be obtained in a mixer at the expense of LO power in a given design; or, by a better design. Higher LO power means more DC power and more hardware. This paper defines a figure of merit that will be useful in judging the IP3 performance of mixers.

Novel Passive FET Mixers Provide Superior Dynamic Range
The dual-double-balanced configuration of these FET mixers helps to improve dynamic range with reduced conversion loss and noise figure without expending DC bias.
