* Unless otherwise noted all measurements performed as downconverter with low side LO & IF = 300 MHz.
The HMC688LP4(E) is Ideal for:
• Cellular/3G & LTE/WiMAX/4G
• Basestations & Repeaters
• GSM, CDMA & OFDM
• Transmitters and Receivers
The HMC688LP4(E) is a high dynamic range passive
MMIC mixer with integrated LO amplier in a 4x4 SMT
QFN package covering 2.0 to 2.7 GHz. Excellent input
IP3 performance of +35 dBm for down conversion is
provided for 3G & 4G GSM/CDMA applications at an
LO drive of 0 dBm. With an input 1 dB compression
of +25 dBm, the RF port will accept a wide range of
input signal levels. Conversion loss is 7.5 dB typical.
The DC to 700 MHz IF frequency response will satisfy
GSM/CDMA transmit or receive frequency plans.
The HMC688LP4(E) is pin for pin compatible with the
HMC689LP4(E) which is a 2.0 - 2.7 GHz mixer with
LO amplier optimized for high side LO applications.
High Input IP3: +35 dBm
Low Conversion Loss: 7.5 dB
Low LO Drive: 0 dBm
Optimized for Low Side LO Input

Evaluation PCB
The circuit board used in the application should use
RF circuit design techniques. Signal lines should
have 50 Ohm impedance while the package ground
leads and exposed paddle should be connected
directly to the ground plane similar to that shown.
A sufficient number of via holes should be used to
connect the top and bottom ground planes. The
evaluation circuit board shown is available from Hit-
tite upon request.
