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.

The CMD303C3 is a sub-harmonically pumped mixer with an integrated LO amplifier housed in a leadless 3x3mm surface mount QFN package. It can be used as an upconverter or downconverter. The device has low conversion loss and excellent 2LO to RF isolation, eliminating the need for additional filtering, The CMD303C3 requires as low as 0 dBm LO drive and operates on a single positive supply voltage. The sub-harmonic design and low LO drive level allows for less stringent oscillator requirements.
