Dual Ku Band Satellite Downconverter IC, Differential Input
Product Brief


The MxL801/MxL802/MxL803 is a family of low-power, highly-integrated dual Ku-band down convertor IC for use in satellite LNB converters.

The device features dual RF inputs (10.7 GHz-12.75 GHz) and dual wide-band IF outputs (290 MHz-2350 MHz). The device integrates many functions that are traditionally implemented by discrete components, and this high level of integration significantly reduces the overall system complexity and BOM cost.

The device is offered in a small 5 mm x 5 mm, 40-pin QFN package.
