Marki Microwave Releases a Family of Ultra-Broadband Mixers That Support Operation Up to 130 GHz

Co-Development of Die and Innovative M-Package Enables Exceptional Mixer Performance

Marki Microwave's newest family of broad bandwidth mmWave mixers are offered in die form or in the company’s innovative M-package design, which allows for DC to 100 GHz+ operation for any two, three or four port MMIC device. The unique packaging approach delivers optimised performance and makes the mixers a mechanically reliable solution.

There is an ever-present demand for multi-octave higher frequency operation, however, the RF and microwave industry has been challenged in creating designs at these frequencies while utilising the wider bandwidths available... designing the die is only a piece of the puzzle. To maintain the die-level performance, the packaging at these high frequencies is an integral part of the design process. This co-development of die and package is an area where Marki Microwave excels.

Christopher Marki, CEO of Marki Microwave.

As Marki Microwave’s newest product category, the mmWave mixers support an incredibly broad bandwidth with frequencies up to 130 GHz, while delivering excellent conversion loss, superior isolation and high linearity. Additionally, the products compete favorably against existing wave guide solutions.


These mixers are ideally suited for ultra-broadband receivers, test and measurement equipment, automotive radar and test receivers for 5G and upcoming 6G standards. Their ultra-broadband operation can simplify customers’ designs and procurement overhead by reducing the number of variants required.
