The double-balanced circuit configuration of the new MAMX Series mixers provides excellent port isolation, while internal 50-ohm matching simplifies the application. In addition, the class 1B (500V - 1000V) electrostatic discharge (ESD) rating ensures high levels of ruggedness and reliability. Both devices - the MAMX-011036 and MAMX-011054 - are available in compact 3 mm, 12 lead QFN plastic packaging as well as bare die formats for flexible integration. (Photo: Business Wire)
