The MAX2660/MAX2661/MAX2663/MAX2671/MAX2673 miniature, low-cost, low-noise upconverters are designed for low-voltage operation and are ideal for use in portable consumer equipment. Signals at the IF input port are mixed with signals at the local oscillator (LO) port using a double-balanced mixer. These upconverters operate with IF input frequencies between 40MHz and 500MHz, and upconvert to output frequencies as high as 2.5GHz. These upconverters offer a wide range of supply currents and output intercept levels to optimize system performance. Supply current is essentially constant over the specified supply voltage range. Additionally, when the devices are in a typical configuration with VSHDN-bar = 0, a shutdown mode reduces the supply current to less than 1µA. The MAX2660/MAX2661/MAX2663/MAX2671 family of upconverters are offered in the space-saving 6-pin SOT23 package. For applications requiring balanced IF ports, choose the MAX2673 upconverters in the 8-pin µMAX package.
