The SKY73063 is a fully integrated up/downconversion mixer that includes a Local Oscillator (LO) driver, an LO switch, and a high linearity mixer. A low loss RF balun has also been included to reduce design complications and lower system cost. The SKY73063 features an input IP3 of +33.5 dBm and an insertion loss of 6.0 dB, making the device an ideal solution for high dynamic range systems such as 2G/3G base station receivers. The LO switch provides more than 40 dB of isolation between LO inputs and supports the switching time required for GSM/EDGE base stations. The SKY73063 is manufactured using a robust silicon BiCMOS process and has been designed for optimum long-term reliability. The SKY73063-NP single up/downconversion mixer is provided in a compact, 20-pin 5 x 5 mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM).
