HIGH PERFORMANCE BROADBAND MIXERS


API Technologies' hybrid mixer product line (formerly Magnum Microwave) covers frequency ranges from 0.5 MHz to 26.5 GHz, in both double or triple balanced configurations. Available in many industry-standard surface mount, drop-in and connectorized housings, these mixers are ideal for high reliability applications. Some features include:

Dependable chip and wire topology offers repeatability under extreme conditions.
