The ADL5355 uses a highly linear, doubly balanced passive mixer core along with integrated RF and LO balancing circuitry to allow for single-ended operation. The ADL5355 incorporates an RF balun, allowing for optimal performance over a 1200 MHz to 2500 MHz RF input frequency range using low-side LO injection for RF frequencies from 1700 MHz to 2500 MHz and high-side LO injection for RF frequencies from 1200 MHz to 1700 MHz. The balanced passive mixer arrangement provides good LO-to-RF leakage, typically better than -39 dBm, and excellent intermodulation performance. The balanced mixer core also provides extremely high input linearity, allowing the device to be used in demanding cellular applications where inband blocking signals may otherwise result in the degradation of dynamic performance. A high linearity IF buffer amplifier follows the passive mixer core to yield a typical power conversion gain of 8.4 dB and can be used with a wide range of output impedances.
