RF mixer is a passive or active three-port device, capable of modulating or demodulating a signal. Its aim is to change frequency of an electromagnetic signal while preserving every other characteristic of initial signal (such as phase and amplitude). The primary reason for frequency conversion is to allow transmitted signal to be amplified at a frequency other than that of the RF. RF mixer generates signals of new frequencies simply by multiplying signals, whereas in an audio mixer it simply adds signals together hence making it a better option. RF mixers are practically used in every radio set to detect phase differences between two signals. Despite the existence of competitive issues among key manufacturers of the market, owing to the global recovery trend, investors continue to invest RF mixers. The RF mixer industry offers a lot of opportunities for new entrants with deep investment pockets and technical support
COVID-19 scenario Analysis for RF Mixers Market
- COVID-19 affected the global economy in three main ways: directly affecting production and demand, creating supply chain and market disruption, and causing financial impact on corporations and financial markets.
- Mini-Circuits has been identified as a critical supplier to many defense, government, telecommunications, and medical customers and as an essential critical infrastructure business according to the guidelines of Critical Infrastructure and Security Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Many of its open production facilities are manufactured at a slightly reduced size, in line with local constraints. The supply chain of Mini-Circuits remains solid through diligent material planning and supplier management efforts. Previously closed supplier factories start reopening and replenishing critical supplies.
- In light of COVID-19 outbreak, Skyworks continues to monitor its supply chain. In its facilities worldwide, Skyworks has implemented multiple protocols, including social distance, pre-shift temperature screening, and increased use of personal protective equipment, increased sanitation standards, and remote work options wherever possible. In addition to these activities, at its numerous production locations, Skyworks has also introduced rotating shifts with a decreased staffing.
