HXI’s HBUC series broadband balanced upconverters cover a wide range of waveguide
bands from 26.5 -110 GHz. They utilize a low loss structure mated to a matched pair of GaAs Schottky beam lead diodes for minimum conversion loss and maximum bandwidth. Superior LO noise suppression and LO -RF isolation values are design features.
Upconverters are used to create a millimeter wave signal by combining a lower IF frequency with a higher MMW LO frequency. Dual signals, or double sidebands are produced in this way: LO ± IF (DSB). Optional filters are offered to suppress the unwanted sideband and produce a single sideband (SSB) upconverter. Biased versions
are available for lower LO drive levels.
