Re: [linrad] For general interest
I was somewhat concerned about the noise figure myself but I don't
know how this device compares with other techniques and products on
the questions of noise or leakage. The SKY data doesn't mention
leakage and the data I have on Mini-circuit mixers doesn't mention
noise. Neither am I sure how to interpret the SKY noise
specification stated as a SSB Noise figure in dB. I plan to obtain
As I am interested in HF, noise requirements are more relaxed than
for higher frequencies and large signal issues seem more important.
I understand that the chip is priced at $9.95 in 500 unit quantity
and I am trying to find out what they would cost in the 1-10 range.
