   Your choices are...         
   Surface Mount Technology (SMT)       Surface mount technology (SMT) adds components to a printed circuit board (PCB) by soldering component leads or terminals to the top surface of the board. SMT components have a flat surface that is soldered to a flat pad on the face of the PCB. Typically, the PCB pad is coated with a paste-like formulation of solder and flux. With careful placement, SMT components on solder paste remain in position until elevated temperatures, usually from an infrared oven, melt the paste and solder the component leads to the PCB pads.   Industry-standard pick-and-place equipment can mount SMT components quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively. SMT is a widely used alternative to mounting processes that insert pins or terminals through holes and solder leads into place on the opposite side of the board.  
   Flat Pack       Flat pack (FPAK) devices have gull wing or flat leads on two or four sides. They provide exceptional thermal and electrical performance and are available in cavity-up and cavity-down configurations. Flat pack devices are typically ceramic, hermetic, and surface-mounted. They are available in a variety of body sizes and pin counts. 
   Through Hole Technology (THT)       Through hole technology (THT) mounts components on a printed circuit board (PCB) by inserting component leads through holes in the board and then soldering the leads in place on the opposite side of the board. 
   Connectorized       Connectorized devices attach with coaxial or other types of connectors. 
   Waveguide Assembly       Waveguide assemblies are used in microwave waveguide systems. They consist of a hollow metallic conductor with a rectangular, elliptical, or circular cross-section. Some conductors contain solid or gaseous dielectric materials.

Performance Specifications
   RF Frequency Range:       The range of input (RF) frequencies that the mixer was designed to work with. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   LO Frequency Range:       A  LO (Local Oscillator) is an oscillator used in superheterodyne receivers which when mixed with an incoming signal results in a sum or difference frequency equal to the intermediate frequency of the receiver. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   IF Frequency Range:       IF (Intermediate Frequency) is the frequency to which all selected signals are converted for additional amplification, filtering, and direction. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Conversion Loss:       Conversion loss is defined as the loss of power between the input RF signal and the output IF signal during the frequency translation. It is calculated as the ratio (in dB) of the IF output power to the RF input power. It is a measure of the efficiency of the mixer in providing frequency translation between the input RF signal and the output IF signal.  All conversion loss measurements are normally based on the mixer being installed in a 50 Ohms system and a stated LO signal power specified according with the appropriate mixer type. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   LO Power:      The power level (in dBm) that must be supplied by the local oscillator to properly drive the mixer diodes. The LO power is a very important factor in determining the values of IP3, 1 dB Compression Point and Dynamic Range of a mixer.
   Your choices are...         
   +7 dBm       LO power level is 7 dBm. 
   +10 dBm       LO power level is 10 dBm. 
   +13 dBm       LO power level is 13 dBm. 
   +17 dBm       LO power level is 17 dBm. 
   +23 dBm       LO power level is 23 dBm. 
   +27 dBm       LO power level is 27 dBm. 
   Other       Other, not listed, LO power levels. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Isolation Isolation is a measure of the circuit balance within the mixer.  It is the level of attenuation of a signal injected into a specific port when measured at a different port. When the isolation is high, the amount of "leakage" or "feed thru" between the mixer ports will be very small.  Isolation is formally defined as the ratio (in dB) of the power level applied at one port of the mixer to the resulting power level at the same frequency appearing at another port.
   LO - RF Isolation:       The isolation from the LO port to the RF port. It is the degree of attenuation of the LO signal measured at the RF port with the IF port properly terminated. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   LO - IF Isolation:       The isolation  from the LO port to the IF port. It is the degree of attenuation of the LO signal measured at the IF port with the RF port properly terminated. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.

Other Specifications
   Mixer Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Single Balanced Mixer       The Single Balanced mixer is made of two diodes and a balanced transformer that drives the diodes out of phase for the LO, and in-phase for the RF port. This type of mixer is used mostly in the frequency range above 1GHz.   
   Double Balanced Mixer       Double balanced mixers use a single quad diode on a soft substrate and offer excellent VSWR as well as cancellation of even harmonics generated by the mixing of the RF and LO signals. 
   Triple Balanced Mixer       Triple balanced mixers (also known as double-double balanced mixers) have dual quad diodes on a soft substrate and offer a high point compression point performance with a broad IF frequency range. 
   Quadrature IF Mixer       A Quadrature IF Mixer produces two IF outputs in phase quadrature. 
   Image Reject Mixer       An image is a spurious signal occurring in a receiver's IF terminal together with the real signal.  If the frequency difference between the image and the real signals is relatively small, a conventional bandpass filter is not adequate. In an Image Reject Mixer (IRM) the image is separate from the real signal by vector subtraction. An IRM consists of a Quadrature IF mixer and an IF hybrid.  An IRM can be used also to separate one of the two sidebands produced by the mixer. The IF hybrid combines the two IF outputs from the quadrature IF mixer to produce an IF version of either the upper or lower sideband of the input RF signal. The other sideband is rejected. 
   Other       Other, not listed, types of mixers. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Operating Temperature:       This is the full required range of ambient operating temperature. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
