The CGY2470UH/C1 is a high performance active up mixer GaAs MMIC working in the W-band. The device has an added power amplifier at the RF port decreasing conversion loss. The insertion loss is 3 dB with LO power of 7 dBm. The RF frequency range is 92 to 96 GHz, the LO range is 86 to 90 GHz and the IF is 5.2 to 5.6 GHz. The LO suppression is 4 dBc at RF port and the image rejection is 20 dBc. The device can be used in radar, telecommunication, instrumentation applications and passive or active imaging.
The die is manufactured using D007IH OMMIC's Advanced 70 nm gate length high indium mHEMT technology. The MMIC uses gold bonding pads and backside metallization and is fully protected with silicon nitride passivation to obtain the highest level of reliability. This part is a member of a chipset dedicated to build a transmit and receive radio in this band.
