Frequency Conversion

Mercury designs custom frequency converters ranging from 500 KHz to 60 GHz. Performance is optimized to meet or exceed customer specifications by utilizing and combining assorted technologies (e.g., MMIC-based mixers, switches, amplifiers, attenuators, hybrid designs).
Our in-house filter design experience and capability, combined with our MFA line, lets us offer the highest performance at a competitive price. Applications range from simple up and down converters for commercial applications to highly integrated subsystems for military programs.
