Abstract

Active transistor mixers have become very popular integrated circuit components due to the fact that they can provide conversion gain, operate with low LO drive levels, and provide excellent port-toport isolation. They are plagued by some problems, however, such as relatively high noise figure and mediocre linearity performance.
