MPD Fully Functioning During the Covid-19 Emergency

We just thought we’d let all of you know that it is business as usual at Octagon Communications and MPD. All necessary precautions have been taken, and, as several of our staffers already work remotely, the office is open for business until we are told otherwise.

The May issue of MPD will arrive on schedule, and of course our website and the digital edition will continue to be available.

Feel free to contact any of us with questions or concerns!

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.

Frequency Converter

To serve the 5G/WiGig research efforts, the company developed Model M68-3X2B, a frequency converter/mixer that operates in V-band and accepts an RF input frequency from 64 to 71 GHz. The LO input frequency/power is 32 to 35.5 GHz at +15 dBm. An integrated LO X2 multiplier generates the 64 to 71 GHz LO. The IF output frequency is 0.01 to 7 GHz. Mixer conversion loss is 6 dB typical, 8.5 dB maximum, with an input P1dB of 0 dBm typical.
