Description

Millitech’s line of active multipliers offers the best performance available in the industry. These multipliers are capable of extending the range of sources from 7.5 to 20 GHz coaxial to the complete millimeter-wave spectrum from 26 to 140 GHz in waveguide outputs of WR-28, 22, 19, 15, 10, and 08 as well as K/2.92mm coaxial connectors. Recent upgrades have improved the performance of the WR-19, WR-15 and WR-10 models with higher output power, lower power dissipation, built-in bias protection, and a more rugged package.

The frequency stability at the output frequency is the same as that of the input source. The output phase noise will degrade by the (20 Log N), where N is the multiplication factor of the active multiplier chain.

The series AMC can be used as the Local Oscillator (LO) input when mated with Millitech mixers series MXP, MXB, and MSH. Added versatility can be achieved by using the series AMC with Millitech series MUD Frequency Doublers and series MUT Frequency Triplers for frequency ranges extending up to 300 GHz. Higher power levels can be obtained by adding Millitech series AMP Power Amplifiers as an intermediate stage. Contact Millitech to discuss specific requirements and applications.

Plots of harmonic performance on selected models are included in this data sheet.
