The CGY2471UH/C1 is a high performance passive down mixer GaAs MMIC working in the W-band. The device has a conversion gain of -10 dB and a LO input power of -5 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 20 dBc 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.
