20GHz Integrated-LO RF Mixer

MX6800KU mixer
wideband mixer with local oscillator

THE most compact and economical microwave integrated-mixer on the planet. 

New from DS Instruments, the MX20000 (MX6800KU) is a wideband high-performance mixer with integrated 13GHz – 24GHz Local Oscillator. LO frequency can be set with front controls, USB commands, or the provided windows PC application. Using its ultra-low noise internal reference source the LO signal has extremely low phase noise. The MX20000 makes an extremely convenient upconverter or downconverter by eliminating the need for extra cabling and a separate bulky, expensive high-frequency signal source.
