NOTES:
1. A variety of designs exist, of which only some samples are shown.
2. Compatible with Agilent Noise Figure Analyzers eg. Model N8975A, and Fieldfox SA/VNA.
3. Frequency plan depends on final selection of harmonic numbers.
4. See Fullband Waveguide Harmonic Mixers for unpackaged solutions and other frequency bands as shown in –VTHM series.
5. Local oscillator can be internal or externally provided. State required phase noise and stability if required internally.
6. How to order - provide the Model number above and/or your custom specifications for RF, LO and IF range including gain, noise figure.
